Healthy Smiles for School Project!
No matter how you voted on the recent water fluoridation ballot measure, it is clear that Portland area kids need better access to dental health care, and that fluoride in some form helps prevent tooth decay. According to the Centers for Disease Control, tooth decay remains the most common chronic disease of children aged 6-11, and daily/frequent exposure to small amounts of fluorides reduces tooth decay for all age groups. So, what can we at Fremont do about it?
For a start, we can become involved with the upcoming “Healthy Smiles for School Project” that we've begun. This Fremont campaign will be ongoing and in partnership with the existing Backpack Lunch Program. We have obtained permission from our Backpack schools to include toothbrushes and fluoride toothpaste in the backpack lunches this fall, and have already received feedback from some of the mothers at King school that they’re very excited about this. Our goal is to replace items on an ongoing basis throughout the year.
How can you help?
1. Donate money for the purchase of toothbrushes and toothpaste. For as little as six dollars every two months, you can support a child with
ongoing toothbrush and toothpaste needs. Consider a monthly donation for as many children as you would like to support.
2. Tell your friends and family about this effort. Donations can be made to Fremont UMC; ‘Healthy Smiles’ can be noted.
All are welcome to worship, we are an open and inclusive community of faith.
Holy Communion on the first Sunday of the month is open to everyone who seeks the grace of God through the bread of life and the cup of grace.
