M.R. Bishop DMD and Associates is pleased to announce that Nicholasville Nursing and Rehabilitation, formerly Diversicare of Nicholasville, has donated $1,000 to its 2019 Share a Smile Holiday Food Drive for Jessamine County residents in need during the holiday season.
Nicholasville Nursing and Rehabilitation Executive Director Tom Davis and Clinical Liaison Susan Harris, LPN presenedt the check to Jessamine Salvation Army representatives and Dr. Rebecca Green of M.R. Bishop DMD last Tuesday.
Donations of canned goods will be collected at the following locations until Nov. 21:
- M.R. Bishop DMD and Associates, located at 409 Etter Drive.
- White, Greer & Maggard Orthodontics, located at 207 Fairfield Drive,
- Kentucky Center for Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, located at 203 Fairfield Drive.
The M.R. Bishop DMD and Associates Share a Smile Holiday Food Drive works with both the Jessamine County Salvation Army and the Jessamine County Food Pantry to provide traditional holiday foods, such as fresh turkeys and the “fixings” for a Thanksgiving meal, but also enough staples such as spaghetti, cereal and snack foods to get entire families through the holiday season.
“With help from our wonderful patients and friends as well as organizations like Nicholasville Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, Jessamine County’s 100 Women Who Care, and our sponsors White, Greer & Maggard Orthodontics and the Kentucky Center for Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, we expect this year’s Share a Smile Holiday Food Drive to fill the pantries of more Jessamine County families in need than ever before,” said Terri Fischer-Ware, food drive organizer and M.R. Bishop DMD and Associates co-owner and office manager.
The annual Share a Smile Holiday Food Drive has grown from a small effort to feed a handful of families to a “mega” food drive that filled the pantries of approximately 15,000 families in 2018.
