Braveheart & KaBoom! Bring Play to Garden Grove, Calif.
On May 9th, 2015, a team of over 200 Smile Generation®-trusted clinicians and team members from the Southern California region served their community in South Orange County through “Braveheart”. Braveheart is an annual event which provides donated dentistry to people in need, while partnering with local agencies and KaBoom! to build brand new playgrounds for the local children. Because play matters!
This event served the Orangewood Avenue Baptist Church and the Friendly Center in Garden Grove, CA. Volunteers built a playground alongside the team from KaBoom!, while Smile Generation-trusted clinicians served the dental needs of the community through the PDS Serve Foundation™ Mobile Dental Clinic.
In addition to building an AWESOME playground, volunteers built shade structures, picnic tables and benches, raised garden beds, trash containers, planter boxes and a handicap accessible “pathway to fun”! The volunteers also mixed and poured hundreds of pounds of concrete and moved two giant mountains of mulch!
The mobile dental clinic volunteers served 130 patients and provided nearly $65,000 in donated dentistry! We are so thankful to everyone who helped serve.
We look forward to serving you and your community soon!
