September 19, 2016
Henry Schein announced this summer that it would donate 3,000 kits containing toothbrushes, toothpaste, mouthwash and other hygiene products to American Cancer Society Hope Lodge Facilities, a program providing free temporary housing for cancer patients and their loved ones.
Henry Schein said it joins 20 other companies in providing products and support to the Hope Lodge Facilities: 3M, AllWays, Clorox, Colgate, Coltene, Dentsply, GC America, Gojo, GSK, Heraeus, Hu-Friedy, Kerr Group, Medico, Medicom, Oral-B, Revive, Septodont, Sunstar, Team Technologies and Water Pik. This is the eighth consecutive year Henry Schein has provided kits for the program.
“We at Henry Schein are humbled by the strength and courage demonstrated by Hope Lodge guests in their fight against cancer, a fight made even more daunting by new surroundings in an unfamiliar city,” said Stanley M. Bergman, chairman of the board and chief executive officer of Henry Schein. “We hope that our Welcome Kit program, which is so generously supported by our supplier partners, provides these incredible people with some of the comforts of home.”
