The GRACE Millen Ambassador team began assembling dental hygiene bag on Monday, February 28th. When we first tasked the team with collecting items, we gave them the challenge of collecting 300 items (any combination of toothbrushes, toothpaste, mouthwash, and dental floss). The latest number show a total of 1,349 items collected in the Millen community over the last 4 weeks!
Our goal, as an organization is to have 1,200 dental bags pack and ready to be sent to Thailand. Thanks to the Millen team, have put a huge dent in our goal.
We still need:
Toothbrushes - 253
Travel sized toothpaste - 808
Mouthwash - 1194
Floss - 1190
Quart sized ziplocked bags
A giant THANK YOU goes out to Jenkins County Middle/High for allowing us to push the collection drive their. Also to the various business in Millen who allowed collection boxes to be placed - Charm Barn, Round's on Winthrope, and Cafe on Cotton!
A HUGE thank you also goes out to GRACE + GLAMOUR Boutique for providing the food for team during our last meeting. The kids (and adults) LOVED IT!
