LOUISVILLE, Ky. — In the mountains of Beverly, Ky., the Red Bird Mission prepares for the holiday season, thanks to the contributions of Delta Dental of Kentucky. This weekend, members of Delta Dental leadership traveled to the Red Bird campus bearing gifts for the community and items to help restock the mission’s hygiene, clothing and toy inventory.
The Red Bird Dental Clinic is a non-profit clinic at the Red Bird Mission that provides dental care for low-income, underinsured or uninsured citizens in southeastern Kentucky. The clinic recently increased their capacity for care through a $50,000 donation from Delta Dental of Kentucky.
“The Delta Dental volunteers were instrumental in the distribution of Christmas gifts to families because of our small staff numbers and the immense task ahead of us that day,” said Tracy Nolan, director of Community Outreach for Red Bird Mission. “The donations of toys, hygiene supplies, clothes, and much more from the Delta Dental employees were critical to help meet the needs.”
Gifts for the mission include clothes, bedding, and toys.
