Bright Smiles was honoured to be asked again to support Holiday with a Hero!This event helps foster a positive relationship between youth and emergency services personnel. This includes police officers, fire fighters, emergency medics, physicians and park rangers. Young children between the ages of 6-12 are selected each year to shop at our local Wal-Mart to purchase gifts for members of their immediate family and themselves. Each child is given a small amount of money to spend. The children are assigned to a “hero”, who then accompanies them around the store and assists in selecting fitting gifts for each family member. After shopping, the children eat breakfast with Santa, have Elves wrap their gifts, and spend some time having fun with inflatable bouncy castles, face painting and spending time with their “hero”. At the end of the day each child goes home with a gift bag filled with a ham and goodies to enjoy with their family!
A special thank you to Morand Family Dental for helping with oral hygiene supplies for the children participating in this event.
