Our featured charity is celebrating 50 years of service to Portland public school children that do not have the means for dental health care. More than 15,000 children in the Portland Metropolitan do not have sufficient dental care due to family financial strains or lack of insurance. This program is supported by volunteers in the dental field offering their services to make sure these children get the care they need. Creston Children's Dental Clinic is the only school-based safety net dental clinic in Multnomah County. Since 1962, they have served uninsured, low-income children in the Portland Public Schools who do not have access to affordable dental care.
Without the service to the community that FCCDC provides, thousands of children each year would suffer needlessly from preventable oral disease."

Please help us in supporting a great program that is needed by so many children in our community. Throughout the month of November a percentage of our dinner sales will be donated to Friends of Creston Children's Dental Clinic.
