Colgate-Palmolive, through the Kids In Need Foundation, is donating 7,500 Colgate toothbrushes and tubes of toothpaste to The Public Education Foundation’s Teacher EXCHANGE.
Starting this week, the Teacher EXCHANGE, which is a member of the Kids In Need Foundation Resource Center network, will be distributing Colgate toothbrushes and toothpaste to students at 10 elementary schools in Clark County School District. The donation is part of Colgate’s Bright Smiles, Bright Futures initiative, which helps teach children proper dental hygiene.
The participating elementary schools are Paul Culley, Crestwood, Rex Bell, Matt Kelly, Gene Ward, Fitzgerald, Ruth Fyfe, Sunrise Acres, Petersen and J.T. McWilliams.
Parents participating in The Public Education Foundation’s Family Learning Program at Matt Kelly Elementary School will be holding a family health fair Friday as part of their family service-learning opportunity. During this health fair, attention will be paid to proper dental care – along with eye and hearing care – and students will receive Colgate toothbrushes and toothpaste.
