#GivingWednesday with Orthodontic Experts!
Orthodontic Experts was so happy to give back to the community yesterday with Feed My Starving Children in Schaumburg. Our practice is huge on giving back to different communities. However, we were so pleased to join this wonderful organization as we packed rice and soy for the families in Columbia who didn’t have food to eat. Here is a little brief history of the organization:
Feed My Starving Children is a non-profit organization, which provides nutritionally complete meals specifically formulated for malnourished children. This is where Orthodontic Experts comes in and makes a difference with those families by packing food. “Healthy” is our kind of word as it brings the best smile out of you!
Once we got our group together we were placed at the table named “Ghana” where we would start packing the food. There were different stations in which, each person would have a specific job for the group. For example, here is a list of the jobs that we had to choose from:
- Food Distributor
- Bag Filler
- Scaler for the Bags
- Warehouse Helper
At the very end of the night, the staff mentioned to all of us that everyone packed over 95 boxes. This gave all the families out in Columbia over 20,520 meals and 56 kids fed for a year. That is so wonderful seeing how Orthodontic Experts has made a huge impact on all these families in Columbia.
Lastly, Dr. Yaroslav Yarmolyuk our founder and president of Orthodontic Experts mentioned, “We love our communities and Orthodontic Experts is always here to help in any way possible.” That being said, giving back is very important to our company and our community members as we continue to create beautiful smiles that will last a lifetime!
See all the fun that we had from the photos below 🙂
