[nectar_dropcap color="#91c14f"]I[/nectar_dropcap]t's that time again.


Time to show our support for the people of our community who work so hard to do good for our neighbors. April's Charity of the Month is the Focus Foundation. The Focus Foundation supports individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Intellectual or Developmental Disorder (IDD) by helping them gain a sense of community and independence through volunteer work and community activities. More than 3.5 million Americans have ASD and the Center for Disease Control has estimated that ASD is the fastest-growing developmental disability in the U.S. We at Shoe Orthodontics want to show our love and support to the ASD community by giving to the Focus Foundation as our Charity of the Month

Here's what we're doing and how you can help:

  • We are hosting a community yard sale as a fundraiser May 18th 8-2pm at 1191 Eichelberger Street, Hanover PA. The event is rain or shine.  In order to do this, we're accepting donations to be used at the yard sale. You bring, we sell, and we will give the money to the Focus Foundation on behalf of the staff and patients at Shoe Orthodontics. Donations can be dropped off at our office Monday - Friday normal business hours. We will also have tie-dyed t-shirts and handmade earrings for sale at the yard sale. 100% of the proceeds go directly to the Focus Foundation.
  •  Earrings are being sold in the office $10 per pair, 100% of the money raised goes directly back to Focus Foundation!

It's a simple project, but one that will benefit a charity that supports children and adults with Autism along with the families who love and care for them.

[nectar_dropcap color="#91c14f"]W[/nectar_dropcap]e are absolutely pumped to announce the first Charity of the Month for 2019: Penn State THON!


If you haven't yet heard of Penn State THON, you need to know that it's the largest student-run philanthropy in the world! THON shares that they are "committed to enhancing the lives of children and families impacted by Childhood Cancer." Their mission is "to provide emotional and financial support, spread awareness and ensure funding for critical research-all in pursuit of a cure."

HOW YOU CAN HELP

We will be selling t-shirts in our office for $15, and we will be giving 100% of the proceeds to THON and their efforts to find a cure for Childhood Cancer and to support the families whose lives are impacted.

It's such an honor to be doing this work with you, and as always, we're so grateful to be part of such a generous community.

[nectar_dropcap color="#91c14f"]E[/nectar_dropcap]very month, Shoe Orthodontics chooses a different local charity to support, and this month we're honored and excited to highlight and serve Children's Cancer Recovery Foundation.


The Children's Cancer Recovery Foundation (CCRF) improves the mental, social, and emotional well-being of children with cancer and their families. This worthy charitable foundation supports these families through several avenues, including the Bearable Gifts Program, the Helping Hands Fund, and the Camp Scholarship Program.

It is our joy to invite you to join us in supporting the Children's Cancer Recovery Foundation, by:

  • Purchasing awesome CCRF t-shirts in our office. 100% of the t-shirt proceeds will benefit the foundation! You are also welcome to donate beyond the price of the shirts as well 🙂
  • Contributing to the toy-collection box. We know you guys will have fun joining us in this, especially if you haven't shopped for toys in a while. Simply have a blast gathering fun toys, and bring them to the Children's Cancer Recovery Foundation box at Shoe Orthodontics, knowing that your gifts will be more than just a notion of support.

We're grateful to help provide tangible ways to show these children and their families our love, and we look forward to joining you in this worthy cause.

[nectar_dropcap color="#91c14f"]S[/nectar_dropcap]hoe Orthodontics is honored to recognize a different local charity each month during the year. For the month of June, we’ve chosen The Adams County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA). We’re all huge pup lovers here, and we know how many others feel the same way. This charity makes a difference in the lives of animals!

The Adams County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA), is a non-profit organization that provides shelter and care for lost, abandoned and abused animals, investigates cases of cruelty to animals, recommends the prosecution of persons engaging in animal cruelty or neglect, helps control animal overpopulation and educates the community about spay/neuter programs, animals wellness and safety.

To support them this month, you can bring donations of money, dog/cat food or pet supplies. As our thank you, we’d like to give you a cool SPCA frisbee. We’ll also have some SPCA shirts for sale for $15.

100% of all donations we receive will go to the SPCA.
