It’s been a little over two weeks since we started our Dental Floss Drive for Carmichael Outreach and the response has been incredible. Thank you, My 92.1 Family for all your generous donations.
We came up with the idea when I opened up one of my drawers in my bathroom and noticed I had a lot of unused dental floss. Every time you go to the dentist they give you a little care package and for me, it usually ends up at the bottom of my drawer. Don’t worry, I do floss my teeth, I just use those floss picks! So after I noticed all of this unused dental floss I contacted Carmichael Outreach and asked if they take oral hygiene products and sure enough, they do!
So our main focus has been collecting dental floss but so many people have been donating other oral hygiene products which is amazing. We have a ton of toothpaste and toothbrushes to pass along to Carmichael. I’ve also had a dental hygienist reach out to me offering 20 hours of her time to Carmichael for oral hygiene classes. AMAZING!!
Our goal is to collect 20kms of dental floss and so far we’ve collected 8.47kms. After two weeks I’d say we’re doing pretty good. If you would like to donate, drop of your dental floss or any other oral hygiene products at 1900 Rose Street.
We’re open Monday-Friday 8am-5pm.
UPDATE: Our dental floss drive has come to an end. We collected 21kms of dental floss and a bunch of other oral hygiene products!
