Dental 2000 a Totowa based dental office donated $900 to the Eva’s Village this week to raise oral health awareness.
“Dental 2000 hosted a community-wide health fair in October where proceeds were raised to support local charity and educate the community about the importance of health and wellness,” dental office’s marketing director Michelle Vernuccio said in an email.
Vernuccio (pictured, left) said her organization raised roughly $1,825 during the event. Half of that money went to the Eva’s Village, the largest anti-poverty organization in New Jersey. The other half was directed to a Hackensack based charity Tomorrow’s Children Fund.
The $912 check was presented by Vernuccio to the anti-poverty organization’s executive director Marie Reger (pictured, right).
Vernuccio is hoping the funds will assist the non-profit to further its mission to feed the indigent, treat addicts, and provide free medical and dental care to the poor.
