Supporting Stock Their Lockers!

Partnering with the Samaritan Center to help with their charity drives has been an amazing experience for our Ooltewah dentist office. Our staff has gotten to know some of the staff at Samaritan Center, and we’ve been able to assist with their goals of helping the Ooltewah community with their needs. Their latest charity drive is the Stock Their Lockers campaign.

The required school supplies for a single student can cost a family more than $100, which is a lot of money for a family on a limited income. By providing some of these supplies, we can help support the children in your neighborhood by ensuring they have the needed tools to succeed. As a collection partner, you can drop off any of the supplies listed below at our office on Ooltewah-Georgetown Road. Our office hours are Monday through Thursday 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
