For the past 30 years, Colony Square Dental Associates has had the privilege of serving generations of patients in the Midtown area. In honor of these many years well spent, they elected to host a ‘Like & Share’ Challenge on their Facebook page. Since the beginning of the year, an outpouring of patients, visitors, and friends all did their part to support Colony Square Dental’s cause and participate in the office’s contribution. Located only three miles from the practice, the Atlanta Community Food bank was chosen to be the recipient of the office’s charitable donation this year.
On the morning of the office’s ‘Team Day’, each member of their staff, including Drs. Hochberg and Diora, met bright and early at the food bank to volunteer. Many hands were needed, as there was plenty to do - including sorting food, checking expiration dates, and boxing meals and supplies. The team at Colony Square Dental Associates, along with other volunteers present that day, were able to prepare 11,567 pounds of food; which in turn created 7,910 meals for the needy children and families in our community.
In addition to volunteering, it was an honor to also provide the food bank with a cash donation, to recognize all of the patients who participated in our Facebook Challenge. Upon tallying the final number, their office was able to compile a noteworthy amount of ‘Likes & Shares’. It was decided to multiply this number by three to represent the three decades spent in Colony Square. Every $1 donated allows the food bank to purchase more than $9 worth of food. With the office’s contribution, it is estimated the food bank will be able to purchase approximately $24,000 worth of food for hungry Atlanta families.
