ABC’s of Healthy Children Spring Event
On Saturday, April 15th, JLC Members hosted the ABCs of Healthy Children event at the Walmart on Forest Drive. This is our annual, and sometimes bi-annual, shopping event for selected Richland One schools which also offers an opportunity to receive a free dental screening. Our members assisted 137 children and families while shopping and served more than 575 students in the community after sharing supplies with local schools providing students with fruit, a book, a piece of clothing, shoes, and dental items. There were 57 kids who participated in the Colgate screening. Thanks to League sponsors and volunteers, we were able to have a successful spring event and spend over $5,000 to help those in need in our community.
