Help Atlanta family violence victims during ADA 2017

October 02, 2017

by Michelle Manchir

Atlanta – Two local philanthropic organizations will benefit thanks to the Alliance of the American Dental Association’s service project at ADA 2017 – America’s Dental Meeting, and ADA members are invited to join in the effort.

The Alliance will coordinate with the Head 2 Toe Project, which supports local nonprofits, by collecting and packaging 1,500 kits with oral health care and other necessities. Alliance members will distribute the kits to the International Women’s House, which provides supportive services for women and children who are victims of family violence, sexual abuse and human trafficking, and to Covenant House Georgia, which serves homeless and trafficked youth by providing safe, accessible housing and other services.

Henry Schein Cares has provided the Alliance with oral health care items, but the group will accept other donations, such as hats, gloves, socks, packages of underwear, scarves and gift cards, during ADA 2017. A donation bin is available until 11 a.m. Oct. 20 at the Atlanta Hilton Hotel, Room 308.

ADA members and those interested in joining the Alliance are invited to the Alliance’s Dental Health Education Luncheon at 12:30 p.m. on Oct. 20 at the Atlanta Hilton Hotel, where attendees will package the kits.

For more information about the Head 2 Toe project or the Alliance, contact Lissette Zuknick or Kelsey Bulnes at or by calling 1-813-540-2154. A complete list of items being collected for the project is available at
