Getting into the holiday spirit has always been easy for me. This year at the orthodontic office I work at, we wanted to make the holiday season an extra meaningful one. We have always collected food for local Food Banks, and this year it felt more important than ever with Calgary's economic downturn. We have patients using the Food Bank for the first time ever, so it felt right to do this again. When I saw the CP Holiday Train campaign to collect Healthy Donations, I knew this was for us!
Health has always been important to me, whether it's dental, mental or physical. As a mom of 3 kids, I started thinking about how those using the Food Bank would make healthy living extra challenging. Our office, Authentic Orthodontics, sent out an all call to our patients to help with the Healthy Donations. The feedback has been outstanding and the patients have delivered. We are planning on delivering the food to the Holiday Train this Friday with our families.
The Holiday Train encapsules everything I love about the holidays: lights, sounds, entertainment and the giving back feels. And the best part is the entire event is free for all so anyone can attend. We are looking forward to taking our full to the brim donation box to the holiday Train this week!
Dr. French, Dr. Olsen and all of us wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and the very best of the season!
