Our Sixth Annual Food Drive - Join us and help feed our community!
Advance Dental's SIXTH Annual Food Drive Monday October 14th through Saturday December 14th
We would like to take this time to give thanks for what we have and consider what we can share with our community. For the past five years, our office has partnered with the Food Bank of Northern Indiana. If you’ve participated in previous years, you know that we've had FIVE wonderful years of donations, both through food and monetary gifts, from our patients and staff.
We challenge ALL our patients to participate this year and help feed our community members who are in need.
Here is what we've been able to donate together over the years and our goal for 2019.
· 2014: 146 pounds of food donated · 2015: 233 pounds of food donated · 2016: 409 pounds of food donated (including monetary donations) · 2017: 556 pounds of food donated (including monetary donations) · 2018: 1200 pounds of food donated (including monetary donations) *We doubled our goal in 2018* ·2019: 750 pounds is our goal this year!
This is how it works... There will be a barrel inside our door for donations. You are welcome to drop by during office hours with or without an appointment scheduled. So just swing by the office, say hello to our friendly office staff, and drop your non perishable food item in the bin.
Fun Fact... If you don't have an item on hand or dislike grocery shopping - for every $1 you donate, the food bank is able to purchase approximately THREE POUNDS of food! There will be donation slips available at the front office.
All donations will be delivered to the food bank before Christmas. Visit this website for a detailed list of acceptable items to donate. Looking for another way to help out? Click here to learn about how to become a volunteer at the Food Bank of Northern Indiana.
Please keep in mind, during the Holiday Season, our office hours will be adjusted so our staff may spend time with friends and family.

Here at Advance Dental in Granger, IN, creating healthy smiles is our specialty. If your tooth develops an infection or is facing damage from decay, you should visit your dentist, Dr. Ronald F. Stangebye, DDS, immediately to discuss options for saving it. After all, a simple root canal could end up being the key to keeping your smile intact! What Is a Root Canal?
