FITS families spent an afternoon making a difference! JF&CS’ Ben Massell Dental Clinic
(BMDC) is the only resource for comprehensive, quality dental care available to indigent individuals in metro Atlanta.
The Clinic has a life-changing impact on up to 4,000 patients each year. In addition to dental care, the Clinic is thrilled to offer additional, smaller opportunities for some of the families of the Clinic.
This year, FITS families participated in the 4th annual Ben Massell Dental Clinic holiday party, which gave four families an opportunity to enjoy a holiday party, including crafts, games, and fun snacks.
FITS families all brought gifts for the families, which were hidden from the children, in hopes to have them be a surprise for the holidays. Families mixed, mingled, and had a great time at the program!
Ashley Semerenko, Social Services Program Manager at the Ben Massell Dental Clinic, said, “having this party is a unique way we can connect with patients on a more personal level (it’s far beyond the treatment chair!).
Seeing the adults and children connect is powerful and both volunteers and party attendees are touched every year by their experience (tears, hugs, recipes and holiday traditions shared). The event wouldn’t be possible without our volunteers and donors.”
