Looking for a way to make a difference? Mortenson Family Dental, BracesBracesBraces and Kid’s Dentistree locations are proud to be collection sites for two non-profits that call Kentucky home, the Crusade for Children and WaterStep. If you are looking for a way to contribute to either or both of these charities, drop by any Mortenson Family Dental and we will be glad to help you!
Through the end of March, we will be collecting financial contributions to the Crusade for Children. The Crusade for Children is a fundraiser held throughout the Louisville and Southern Indiana community, most notably with their telethon and help from local fire fighters in June. 100% of the funds raised are used to help children with special needs in the local area.
WaterStep’s mission is to save lives through safe water around the globe. Through innovative water purification systems and educational efforts, WaterStep is able to improve the health and quality life for so many. WaterStep also works to provide relief in emergency situations where water supplies are compromised. In an effort to help with the water situation in Flint, MI, the City of Louisville and WaterStep have set out to fill an entire semi full of shoes. The shoes are used sold to an exporter and WaterStep uses the money from the sale to fund its projects. In this case, the money raised will be donated to organizations in Flit, to help the children impacted by the lead in their water.
