Established in 2008, the Henry Schein Cares Foundation works to foster, support, and promote dental, medical, and animal health by helping to increase access to care in communities around the world. The Henry Schein Cares Foundation carries out its mission through financial and health care product donations to nonprofit organizations supporting health care professionals and community-based programs focused on prevention, wellness, and treatment; disaster preparedness and relief; and capacity building of health institutions that provide training and care.
Nine organizations were selected by an independent panel of judges as finalists across three categories: oral health, animal health, and medical health. From those nine finalists, three will receive the Henry Schein Cares Medal, representing one medalist each for oral, animal, and medical health. The medalists, also selected by the panel, will be announced later this year. In no particular order, the finalists, by category, are as follows:
· Oral health: Apple Tree Dental (Coon Rapids, Minnesota), Diocesan Council for the Society of St. Vincent de Paul Diocese (Phoenix, Arizona), and the San Diego Dental Health Foundation (San Diego, California).
· Animal health: Helping Paws (Escondido, California), Humane Society for Seattle-King County (Bellevue, Washington), and Portland Animal Welfare Team (Portland, Oregon).
· Medical health: Buddhist Tzu Chi Medical Foundation (Alhambra, California); Hands Up for Haiti, Inc. (Mount Kisco, New York); and Smile Rescue Fund for Kids, Inc. (Setauket, New York).
The Helping Paws Military Appreciation Program came together with Team Amber Rescue for a fundraiser to honor the memory of Amber Dubois. Check out the story in this NBC7 report.
