Philanthropy Works:  Dakota Smiles

Posted on

Thanksgiving is a time for gratitude.  Out of the thousands of nonprofit groups and organizations doing amazing work in South Dakota, one program gets love all year-round.  The Dakota Smiles Mobile Dental Program has been serving underprivileged youth in South Dakota since 2004.  Since that time nearly 30,000 children in 78 communities have received $13 million in dental care at no cost.  We hear from so many people who are grateful for this service!  Anecdotal evidence is all you need to determine that the impact these volunteers are having on our state is substantial. 

This video goes behind the scenes with the amazing people who make it all possible.  To think about the impact these volunteers have had, and will continue to have on our great state is almost too inspiring!  What will you do to give back today?
