End 68 Hours of Hunger is a private, not-for-profit, effort to confront the approximately 68 hours of hunger that some school children experience between the free lunch they receive in school on Friday afternoon and the free breakfast they receive in school on Monday morning. This program puts nourishing food in the hands of school children to carry them through the weekend. Each bag of food given is worth $10 each week in donations. It provides two breakfasts, two lunches, and three dinners for a child, with some left over to share. They do this all with the help of donations of food, funds and time.Read More

Antibiotic prophylaxis may offer these people extra protection.Read More

Our mouths are full of bacteria. These bacteria, along with mucus and other particles, constantly form a sticky, colorless “plaque” on teeth. Brushing and flossing help get rid of plaque. Plaque that is not removed can harden and form “tartar” that brushing doesn’t clean. Only a professional cleaning by a dentist or dental hygienist can remove tartar.Read More
