BOSTON, Nov. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Great Hill Dental in Peabody today presented a charitable contribution check for $3,000.00 to the Haven from Hunger. 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 Peabody office partnered with Haven from Hunger, a non-profit that helps families and individuals in need make ends meet by providing emergency food, community meals, and more.
"We're proud of our Peabody office team that donated their time and expertise for this cause," 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. Haven from Hunger provides a variety of much needed services for those in need in the Peabody community, as well as Lynnfield and Salem. It's been an honor to help them continue their good work," he said.
"We are very grateful to Great Hill Dental Peabody for their charitable contribution," said Ann Strong, Executive Director at Haven from Hunger. "We rely on the support of our residents and companies like Great Hill Dental Partners, so that we can continue to provide services to those in need in the Peabody area."
