Dear Community Food Bank, During my time of adversity you displayed the heart of pure goodness and effective leadership. You give real food, during the holidays. You give with all the sides to make a real Thanksgiving or Holiday Feast.…
Thank you to Pacific Dental Services (PDS) for bringing 15 volunteers to the Community Food Bank on Saturday, August 17. Their service was part of the company’s Smile Generation Service Day.
Tammy Spicer is the Cash & Treasury Manager for PDS, where she has been employed for 13 years. She shared, “We have a serve day every year in which dental offices give back and do pro bono dentistry work. None of us here [at the food bank] are certified to do dentistry…of any sort [big laugh]. Most of us work in our support office for accounting, so we had a few opportunities to volunteer, and one of them was here.”
Jeanie Spencer, a hosting supervisor at PDS. “We do this because we have a culture of service. For the entire 11 years that I have been here, we have done something. Every year, we also donate dentistry. While all the offices are out doing dentistry and giving free services to a lot of different charitable organizations–one place is a foster care transitional home–those of us who don’t have clinical hands come to places like the food bank so that we can give back to the community. And honesty, we do it year-round as well. We just have day when we come together as an organization, which is 750 offices and 3 support centers.”
We thank Pacific Dental Services for giving back to the North Texas community!
