Through these generous donations, the initiative provided materials for back-to-school outreach. Ten clinics who provide care to underserved children were each selected to receive a customized banner, 1000 toothbrushes, 1000 tubes of toothpaste, 1000 activity booklets, 1000 stickers, 1000 brochures that provided information on oral health for children and their families, and other educational materials. Some of the funding was used to provide 10 In the Gap grants valued at $1000 each to help cover the cost of necessary dental care for students in financial need. The fundraising gala held in May by MGE included a silent auction with donations from Smiles By The Sea Family Dentistry and other donors to raise funding for the initiative.
