ASDA Students Help with Operation Warm
Posted on 1/7/2014

American Student Dental Association (ASDA) volunteers offered time to help out with Operation Warm at the UIC Forum. The main event on November 2, 2013, was distribution of 10,000 brand-new winter coats for youth living in Chicago Housing Authority buildings. The children’s coats were donated by Pennsylvania-based nonprofit Operation Warm.

In addition, an ASDA volunteer Service Fair provided toothbrushes, toothpaste, and oral hygiene instructions at a health booth for over 5,000 CHA families attending the event.

Residents were grateful for information and supplies provided. This chance to give back to the community in meaningful way was a wonderful opportunity for ASDA members.
