The Alliance of the American Dental Association will help those who are homeless in Houston during this year's Head 2 Toe Project, held in conjunction with SmileCon.
Donations will benefit SEARCH Homeless Services, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending homelessness in Houston. Each year, SEARCH Homeless Services helps thousands of individuals and families move from the streets into safe homes and stable lives through services centered on engagement, stabilization, housing and education.
Donations can be made in person by dropping them off at the Alliance's booth at SmileCon or online by ordering items from SEARCH Homeless Services' outreach, housing and preschool wish lists on Amazon and shipping them directly to the nonprofit. SmileCon will take place Oct. 13-15 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston. The Alliance's booth will be located near the House of Delegates at the Marriott Marquis Houston.
Needed items include toilet paper, deodorant, sunscreen, laundry detergent, feminine products, bottled water, nonperishable food, backpacks, reading glasses, shaving cream, razors, mops, bath towels, cleaning products, hand soap, diapers, first aid kits, winter gloves, children's underwear, and more.
The Alliance asks those who donate through Amazon to email firstname.lastname@example.org to let the organization know.
Made up of ADA member spouses, partners and families, the Alliance hosts the Head 2 Toe Project each year to support an organization local to the host city of the ADA annual meeting.
