We are blessed to live in a great place such as Austin and we believe it is our duty to help our neighbor in whatever way we can
Austin, TX (PRWEB) October 5, 2009
Dr. Michael McCarty and Austin Smiles are partnering with the Capital Area Food Bank in Austin to help the hungry in Central Texas. They have pledged to help raise $5,000 by December 31st to assist less privileged people in the Austin community.
Austin Smiles is a prestigious dental practice specializing in Cosmetic Dentistry and patient comfort serving the Austin metro area. The office has been serving this community with quality dental work since 1979.
The Capital Area Food Bank of Texas has been serving Central Texas families for 28 years, and in 2008 they distributed more than 17 million pounds of food. An impressive 98% of all resources received by the Food Bank are returned to the community in programs and services, and all financial contributions are tax-deductible.
The programs sponsored by the Capital Area Food Bank in Austin are as diverse as the families it serves. One of these programs is "Fresh Fruit for Families", providing families with quality fruits and vegetables during 21 days of distribution each month. FFFF provides an average of more than 100,000 pounds of produce to more than 3,600 families each month.
"Kids Café", another Capital Area Food Bank initiative, is a network of 32 sites in Central Texas serving more than 35,000 meals per month to over 2,800 children in need. This after-school program provides a safe, nurturing place where neighborhood children receive a hot, nutritious dinner, as well as help with homework from caring individuals. Additional programs involve the elderly, food distribution, CHOICES, SNAP (a food stamp program), and others.
This partnership between the Capital Area Food Bank and Austin Smiles allows clients, friends and community neighbors in Austin to securely make a donation on behalf of the central Texas hungry, and provide them with a hope for a better tomorrow.
"We are blessed to live in a great place such as Austin and we believe it is our duty to help our neighbor in whatever way we can," explains Dr. Mike, as he urges everyone to participate in this effort by making a donation to help out our less fortunate neighbors.
