Christmas stockings for local veterans
Each month Stubbs Dental donates the proceeds from new patient exams to a deserving member or organization within our local community.
For the third year in a row, Dave Bergin will be delivering Christmas stockings on Christmas Eve to these heroes who live at the George E. Wahlen Ogden Veterans Home in Ogden, Utah. For the second year in a row we will be donating to his fundraiser. This year we donated $2,160 to help fill the stockings with candy, games, puzzles, electric razors, TV ears, and more!
We are raising funds to fill stockings for the residents of the George E Wahlen Veterans Home in Ogden, UT.
This is our third year of giving back to those who has given so much. As a veteran of the United States Navy, I feel a kinship with and a responsibility to our veterans to make sure they are appreciated and cared for. I will also admit, it was one hell of a rush to be able to play Santa Claus for these heroes last Christmas eve.
100% of net proceeds will go directly to filling the stockings for approximately 150 veterans. Any funds left over are donated directly to the veterans home to use as they see fit.
In previous years, through your kind donations, we have been able to provide every resident with manual dexterity type games, mental dexterity activity books (crosswords, sudoku, word jumbles), tissues, fresh fruit, toothbrushes, toothpaste, electric razors, and TV Magic Ears. We were even able to get little laser guns one year that led to many a "pew pew" war in the hallways.
We would like to do so much more for these brave warriors, so anything you feel compelled to donate would be greatly appreciated. Please try to get your donations in by 12/15/19, but we will always take them and make sure the residents get the funds.
So remember, when you become a patient at Stubbs Dental not only are you helping yourself by taking care of your teeth, you are helping a deserving organization of your local community! If you would like to nominate someone to receive the Stubbs Dental donation please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
