New Lawyers Division Spring Service Project – Smile Drive
The NCAJ New Lawyers Division is teaming up with America’s ToothFairy: National Children’s Oral Health Foundation to host a Smile Drive to raise awareness of the importance of dental health and to collect toothbrushes and toothpaste for youth in need! The smile drive will start in the month of February (National Children’s Dental Health Month) and will run from February 13 to March 31. Your contributions will provide underserved kids with critical oral health resources and tools they need to give them a fair shot at experiencing a lifetime of overall health and wellness.
