Walmart Gives $10,000 Grant to A Soldier’s Smile During Holiday Campaign

Walmart has selected the A Soldier's Smile nonprofit as one of its many companies making a difference in the lives of military vets and their families.

 
PRLog - Dec. 18, 2012 - The A Soldier’s Smile nonprofit has received a grant from Walmart for its efforts to provide veterans free dental care across the nation. In Walmart’s “12 Days of Giving” holiday campaign 140 nonprofits were chosen to receive $1.5 million in donations to help organizations like A Soldier’s Smile make a difference in their communities.

Other organizations that received grants included those that are providing basic needs and services such as food, shelter, clothing and medical care and serve communities in: the District of Columbia, Delaware, California, New York, Florida, Oregon, Texas, Washington, Oklahoma, North Carolina and Vermont. The A Soldier’s Smile events take place across the nation at the offices of over two dozen dentists who have volunteered their time, facilities and resources to help veterans restore their dental health.

“We owe an enormous debt of gratitude to those who serve or have served in our country’s military, as well as to the families of those individuals.” said Sylvia Mathews Burwell, president of the Walmart Foundation. “Whether protecting our freedoms in foreign fields or making contributions here at home, the value these men and women bring to the American workforce and our way of life is beyond measure. We are truly honored to provide grants this holiday season to local organizations that support our military and veterans.”

The A Soldier’s Smile nomination was submitted by Facebook users who felt the nonprofit was providing extraordinary impact in the local community. “We are grateful for the nomination and glad that Walmart has selected our organization as a cause that has significant community impact” says dentist Mike Maroon of Berlin, CT. “Our only wish is to help as many veterans as possible and create awareness so that other organizations may follow suit.”
The A Soldier’s Smile campaigns were put together by the Academy of Comprehensive Esthetics (ACE) and marketing partner Results, Production & Marketing (RPM) of Miami, FL. Select ACE dentists are involved in the nonprofit and will be providing free dental care to soldiers who are not otherwise eligible or cannot afford it.
