YCP has partnered with San Jose Clinic to host a Dental Supply Drive! Throughout the month of August, we ask our fellow YCPers to bring the following dental supplies to ANY YCP EVENT:
- Adult soft bristle toothbrush
- Super Floss
For many of San Jose Dental Clinic patients, the cost of these basic supplies can be a challenge. San Jose serves a low-income population and it means so much to be able to supply patients with these items during their appointment. Donated dental supplies would help defray the cost of providing these supplies to patients of San José Clinic.
San Jose Clinic is a non profit Catholic clinic whose mission is "to provide quality healthcare and education to those with limited access to such services in an environment which respects the dignity of each person." The clinic not only provides services to people in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, but others from as far as Austin visit the clinic for their services. 100% of the clinic's patients are uninsured and 66% live at or below the federal poverty line ($24,600 for a family of 4).
