CHELMSFORD, Mass., Dec. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Great Hill Dental in Chelmsford today presented a charitable contribution check for $1,975.00 to Catie's Closet. The donation money was generated through Great Hill Dental Partners participation in the 18th annual Smiles for Life Campaign, which ran from March to June 30th this year.
Local Charitable Connection
While Smiles for Life is a national charitable organization, Great Hill Dental Partners also partnered with local charities. The Chelmsford office partnered with Catie's Closet, which provides an in-school resource of clothing and basic necessities to students living below the poverty line.
"We're proud of our Chelmsford office team that donated their time and expertise on behalf of this important charity that does so much for school children in need," said Michael Scialabba, CEO at Great Hill Dental Partners.
"We feel it's important to be active and involved with both national charities, and local charities in the communities we serve. It's been an honor to help them continue their good work," he said.
"We are very grateful to Great Hill Dental Chelmsford for their charitable contribution," said Mickey Cockrell, Executive Director and co-founder of Catie's Closet. "We rely on the community-driven support of our residents and companies like Great Hill Dental Partners. Not only did they provide us with their donation, but patients of theirs who became aware of our charity also made personal donations as well, helping us fill 2 closets and providing clothing options for over a thousand children in need."
About Catie's Closet
Schools equipped with a Catie's Closet allows students living in poverty the ability to pick and choose clothing and basic necessities they require, providing up-to-date and stylish clothing that students want to wear. We collect new and gently used clothing at our Distribution Center. Our Closets are well-organized and welcoming places where kids want to "shop."
Lack of access to basic necessities is one of the top reasons for absenteeism. By meeting students' needs, Catie's Closet boosts self-esteem and motivates students to attend school and focus on their education.
