Dentists donate oral care items to school | Community Spirit
A local dentist's office is providing toothbrushes and toothpaste to district students through a donation this week.
A news release Tuesday afternoon said Associated Dentists, with offices in Madison and Verona, donated the oral hygiene items to help keep kids as healthy as possible.
Local charity Madison4Kids, which worked with Associated Dentists in the donation, said many students in the Verona Area School District qualify for free and reduced lunch programs and their families may not have the mearns for basic hygiene items.
Verona High School Principal Pamela Hammen said the school appreciated the gift.
"The brushes and paste will come in handy when trying to meet the needs of the students that we serve," Hammen said in the release.
