Inspired by Claire, who achieved the Gold Award Girl in Girl Scouts and was a leader of a Junior troop while she was in college, #BeMoreLikeClaire has awarded its second grant to sponsor Troop 2703 at Kennedy Elementary School. The money is being used for registration fees, uniforms, books, snacks, materials and field trips for girls who might not be able to have this opportunity without the grant. Nine second and third grade girls have joined the troop and are happily learning the Brownie Smile song, the Girl Scout Promise, making new friends, earning badges and planning service projects. The troop leaders are Shannon VanLandingham, Ashley VanLandingham and Darcey Soto. We look forward to sharing the wonderful things these future leaders will do. Be prepared.
The new van allows them to reach more children with their pop-up dental clinics (as seen the in photo below) in local schools.
DCDC's Friendly Smiles is an outreach program that brings diagnostic, preventive, and operative dental services to area schools. Children who are uninsured that qualify for the free and reduced lunch program at school or children who have a medical card or commercial insurance are eligible to participate.
The Douglas County Dental Clinic extends its helping hands into area schools with the following on-site services:
