Once a year, Davis & Beyer and their staff volunteer to help the underserved members of our community. For a Saturday in December, we are open on a first-come, first served basis to the first 100 patients to provide basic care for those interested. They are entitled to a filling, an extraction or a cleaning at no charge, only one service per patient. We thank our staff and visiting dentists and assistants who participate by giving of their time and talents!
Day of Hope
Day of Hope is a back to school readiness program for homeless children and those in need. The foundation provides their back to school physical/sports physical, dental exam, cleaning instruction and fluoride, haircut, back to school photo and family portrait, $50 gift card to Old Navy for clothes/uniforms, $25 gift card to Payless for shoes, backpack filled with school supplies, care bag filled with personal care items. The kids and their families are fed throughout the day, sent home with bags of food from All Faiths Food Bank, and shared resources from many in the community such as The Patterson Foundation, Goodwill Manasota, and our Libraries. This year over 3 Saturdays, on 12 campuses, 20 partnering churches will serve 2200+ children.
Several of our employees took part in this community project that helps kids start the school year with supplies, and a healthy attitude. We donated not only our talents but supplies of brushes, toothpaste and floss to the participants over a 2 day period in Sarasota and Venice.
