Smile Generation®-Trusted Offices Serve in Louisiana
When Smile Generation®-trusted offices from Louisiana came together for a recent service project, one special community member was surprised with more than just a new home. It started when team members in the Gulf Coast region contacted Habitat for Humanity of Greater Baton Rouge, looking for ways to get involved in their local community. An opportunity arose to help not only a community member but a Habitat for Humanity volunteer - Miss Laura. Laura has volunteered over 150 hours with Habitat for Humanity. After suffering from an aneurysm, Laura found herself in a financial hole. For the past two years, Laura has spent every Wednesday and Saturday volunteering at house builds. After dedicating time to help others, it was now her turn to select a layout, flooring, back-splash and color for her own three bedroom home.
Twenty-four Smile Generation team members volunteered their weekend and worked alongside Miss Laura, to build her new home. Moments after meeting Laura, Dr. Girard, La Canada Smiles Dentistry, knew she could offer more and gave Laura a smile makeover, which brought both women to tears. Today, Miss Laura not only has a new home, but also a new smile. Thank you, Dr. Girard, and the rest of the team who helped create healthier, happier lives for the Baton Rouge community.
