In 2015, the 1st Family Dental team set a goal to do more to help our local communities. This year, we set out to donate to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, to help children in the Chicagoland area who are battling childhood diseases. In September, we planned to donate $10 to St. Jude for every child who came in to any 1st Family Dental location for their back-to-school checkup and cleaning. In October, we donated $50 for anyone who started new orthodontic treatment during the month.
Our 2015 St. Jude Fundraising Story
Our St. Jude Fundraising Story starts with us setting a very ambitious goal to raise $50,000 for the Children’s Hospital. Some folks thought we couldn’t do it. But we knew better, because we know YOU. We asked you, our wonderful patients, staff, doctors, business partners, and friends, to help by bringing your kids in for their check-ups, and by spreading the word through Facebook and social media. Together, WE DID IT. In less than 2 months, you helped us to donate $50,000 to St. Jude.
We were totally blown away by the love and support you showed for the kids and families of St. Jude. We were humbled by how hard our staff and doctors worked to help make this happen. And at the very heart of it, we saw what really happened: kids were helping kids.
We’d like to share this short video with you to show you just how much we appreciate the teamwork and support of our entire community. We hope it inspires you as much as it has inspired us. Please watch this video, and then share your most treasured memory of 2015 with us in the comments below, or by posting a comment on the video in Facebook or YouTube.
From all of us at 1st Family Dental, Happy Holidays to you and yours, and best wishes for a wonderful New Year!
