Now Collecting Donations for KIDS Center!

Deschutes Pediatric Dentistry is proud to support KIDS Center, a child abuse intervention center, by collecting journals for kids in the month of November! We’d like to kick off this great donation drive by sharing some background information on this worthy local cause.

KIDS Center is a safe place for children to tell someone about their abuse and to begin the healing process. It is equipped with a compassionate and well-trained staff that works collaboratively with law enforcement, medical providers and social service agencies to create a proactive response to child abuse. KIDS Center serves our local children in Deschutes, Crook and Jefferson counties and in Warm Springs.

The drive continues through February 2014 and features a different item to donate each month. What’s even more exciting is that our very own Dr. Steve is offering to match one-for-one, every item that is donated to this great organization! See below for a summary of what items you can donate each month and like our Facebook page for regular updates and details about the drive!

November: Play-Doh (no generic brands)

December: Yoga mats

January: Small and regular-size basketballs

February: Plain boxes (no writing or shoeboxes) purchased at Michael’s, Target ect. for kids to decorate as memory/keepsake boxes.

Don’t miss this simple opportunity to give back to kids in our local community who need your support! Donations are accepted at Deschutes Pediatric Dentistry’s office through February 2014. We are located at 1475 SW Chandler Ave Suite 202, Bend, Oregon 97702.
