Dr. Angela Canfield Presents Donation to Second Harvest Food Bank

Savannah Area Dental Offices Present Donation to Kids Cafe at Second Harvest Food Bank

(SAVANNAH, GA) Dr. Angela Canfield, of Sandfly Family Dental in Savannah and Premier Dental Designs in Rincon, has been collecting donated food items for Second Harvest Food Bank’s Kids Cafe program.

Canfield presented the donations to Kids Cafe on August 29, 2017. The presentation consisted of non-perishable food items such as peanut butter, granola bars, peanut butter crackers, macaroni and cheese, cereal, juice boxes and water.

Kids Cafe, a program of the Second Harvest Food Bank of Coastal Georgia, provides children who are at risk for hunger, a safe haven during the school year where they can get a nutritious dinner, tutoring and homework assistance. Its services are proven to increase the likelihood that these children will complete their education and participate in extra-curricular activities.

Healthy eating in childhood and adolescence can prevent various health conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, osteoporosis, iron deficiency and dental cavities, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

“A child needs healthy eating options for proper growth and development,” Canfield said. “We are proud to be able to donate these goods to Second Harvest. Their program is changing the lives of these kids.”

The Georgia Food Bank estimates that more than 700,000 Georgia children live in households without adequate food. Kids Cafe, which began in Savannah in 1989, now serves more than 3,200 children each day at sites in Appling, Bulloch, Chatham, Evans, Liberty, Tattnall and Wayne counties.

Kids Cafe is nationally recognized for its balanced evening meals and the mentoring opportunities it offers.

(SAVANNAH, GA) The Cinnamon Bear Stores, a family-owned group of high-end gift markets serving the Southeast for more than 20 years, has donated $1,040 to the MARNE Community and Spouses’ Club of Fort Stewart/Hunter Army Airfield, a 501©3 non-profit, social and welfare organization that supports the military community through social outreach, academic scholarships and welfare grants.

The donation came from proceeds raised during the Cinnamon Bear Stores grand opening celebrations for their new location in the Twelve Oaks Shopping Center, 5500 Abercorn St.

“Opening our store in this new destination location offering more upscale merchandise is exciting, but having the opportunity to partner with a local organization that helps our military and their families is truly an honor,” said co-owner Michael Snaid. “We were blessed by the turnout for our grand opening celebrations, and we are so excited to share this good fortune with the Marne group.”

The Cinnamon Bear offered an additional 15 percent discount during the grand opening to those with a valid military ID.

“This is huge for our group,” said Nina Elison, president of the Marne group. “The only way we can make a difference in this community is with the help of local businesses and our partners. Michael and Lynne have been very supportive of our mission, and we are most thankful that they chose to celebrate their grand opening by giving back to us.”

This is the first of a series of events planned by Cinnamon Bear to support the Marne Community and Spouses’ Club. The retailer also plans to launch a holiday writing contest for families of Marne.

During the past two decades, The Cinnamon Bear Stores have become a frequent stop for families vacationing along the Georgia, South Carolina and northern Florida coasts with locations at Harbour Town on Hilton Head, City Market and River Street in Savannah and at Fernandina Beach on Amelia Island.

Along with other Cinnamon Bear stores, the new location offers award-winning gourmet products, gifts, toys and books. The new store also offers luxury brands including Brighton, Vera Bradley, Life is Good, Spartina, Lampe Berger Paris, Baggallini and Beatriz Ball.

Canfield and Dental Assistant Kim Jackson went to Bethesda to take impressions of each players’ teeth.

Custom-made mouth guards provide stability to the players’ jaws and cushion blows that can cause severe dental injuries such as broken teeth, fractured jaws, gum lacerations and injuries to their lips or tongue.

“Evidence shows that properly fitting mouth guards can reduce impacts that lead to concussions and other severe injuries,” Canfield said. “Anything I can do to protect local athletes from severe injuries is worth my time and expertise, and I’m happy to help.”

The full fitting, molding and examination of each player’s mouth guards usually cost $440. With 44 players on the Bethesda team, Canfield donated approximately $19,360 in mouth-protection gear to Bethesda Academy students.

The mouth guards have a one-year warranty that covers dental expenses incurred by players who are injured while wearing the mouth guards. The warranty also pays $1,093.75 per injured or replaced tooth and up to a maximum total liability of $35,000 per incident.

The American Dental Association estimates the use of mouth guards prevents approximately 200,000 injuries a year in high school and college football.

This marks the 4th year Canfield picked a local sports team to receive free mouth guards as part of the Canfield Mouth-Shield Program. Applications for the 2018 Canfield Mouth-Shield Team should be submitted to her office. Applications must be submitted by Friday, Sept. 1 to be considered.

The Dewitt Tilton Group Donates New BBQ Pit Roof to Savannah Jaycees

The Dewitt Tilton Group Donates New BBQ Pit Roof to Savannah Jaycees

(SAVANNAH, GA) The Dewitt Tilton Group, a commercial construction firm in Savannah, donated their services to the Savannah Jaycees to rebuild a BBQ pit roof that fell during stormy weather. Guerry Lumber, a Lumber Company that has served Savannah since 1927, and ABC Supply, the largest wholesale distributor of roofing in the United States, have also donated materials to the project.

The Jaycees include young business professionals dedicated to leadership growth through community involvement. As the only Jaycees chapter in the state with their own office, the Savannah Jaycees use their building for meetings, events and leadership speakers.

The BBQ pit roof often serves as an outdoor shelter for the group’s community activities, such as the Surging Forward Picnic, which was held for first responders and firefighters during Hurricane Matthew cleanup.

Since it was damaged by the hurricane and the storms this spring, the Jaycees have been unable to reassemble and secure the roof. So The Dewitt Tilton group reached out to them and offered to rebuild and install a new roof.

“I have seen the culture of altruistic service and progressive thinking the Savannah Jaycees promotes in our community,” said Dewitt Tilton partner Chris Tilton. “They give so much to Savannah, so when the opportunity presented itself to give back to their group, we jumped on it.”

Jaycees president Cynthia Wright said the roof could not have been reinstalled without help.

“We are so thankful that the Dewitt Tilton Group saw our need and chose to show their support for our organization with a project that will serve us both now and in the future,” Wright said.

Dr. Angela Canfield Announces Donation Drive for Second Harvest Food Bank

Dr. Angela Canfield Announces Donation Drive for Second Harvest Food Bank

Sandfly Family Dental and Premier Dental Designs to Hold July Donation Drive for Kids Cafe

(SAVANNAH, GA) Dr. Angela Canfield, of Sandfly Family Dental in Savannah and Premier Dental Designs in Rincon, has announced that her offices will be collecting donations in July and August for Second Harvest Food Bank’s Kids Cafe program, which helps feed area children who have limited food to eat during the school year.

Canfield invites the community to deliver nonperishable food items including peanut butter, granola bars, peanut butter crackers, mac and cheese, cereal, juice boxes and water to either dental office from Friday, July 14, through Friday, August 18, during office hours, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. The donations will be presented to the Kids Cafe in August.

Kids Cafe is a program of the Second Harvest Food Bank of Coastal Georgia that provides children who are at-risk for hunger with a safe haven during the school year where they can get a nutritious dinner, tutoring and homework assistance. Its services are proven to increase the likelihood that these children complete their education and participate in extra-curricular activities.

“When I look at my young daughter, who is healthy and well fed, I cannot imagine how heartbreaking it would be to not have the means to feed her,” Canfield said. “It takes so little to make a big difference for these children, both in the here and now and for the rest of their lives.”

According to the Centers for Disease Control, healthy eating in childhood and adolescence is important for proper growth and development and can prevent various health conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, osteoporosis, iron deficiency and dental cavities.

The Georgia Food Bank estimates that over 700,000 Georgia children live in households without adequate food. Kids Cafe originated in Savannah, Georgia, in 1989 to combat this problem, and it now serves more than 3,200 children each day at one of its sites in Appling, Bulloch, Chatham, Evans, Liberty, Tattnall and Wayne counties.

Kids Cafe is nationally recognized for its balanced evening meals and the mentoring opportunities it offers the children it serves.

Food items can be dropped off at Premier Dental Designs, located at 5871 Highway 21 South in Rincon, and Sandfly Family Dental at 7360 Skidaway, Rd Suite 2 in Savannah.
