Healthy Kids Day - Take 3
Posted by Paul on 4/28/2014 11:19:00 AM
Last Saturday was the third edition of our Healthy Kids Day outreach in partnership with Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services and the YMCA. We use grant dollars from DHSS to purchase and ship oral health materials to YMCA's around the state who are kicking off their summer offerings with a health fair. The Y provides the space and the MDA provides the volunteers to man the table and educate the audience while distributing the goodies. This year's theme was 2Min2X and every child received a 2 minute sand timer to help them learn the need to brush twice a day for two minutes each time.
With MOMOM just one week away, I was unable to attend an event this year but the numbers were strong again with 10 YMCA's participating and 1700 goodie bags distributed. A special shout out to the Leadership Class kids from Jefferson City High School who came to the MDA and power packed all those bags in 90 minutes.
Thanks to all the volunteers who served on this busy Saturday!
