___________________________________________________________________________________

Join CFA's challenge to the community to end childhood hunger by creating a detailed or simple "I Signed Up" poster to announce your support of CFA's work to help our neighbors in need!  

Make a video of yourself, or yourself with friends, challenging friends, family, co-workers, etc to do the same and then post on as many social media outlets as possible.  Together, we can make a difference!

Welcome to Smile Packs

CFA is launching Smile Packs, a new initiative to help encourage our young clients to exercise proper dental hygiene.

Our plan is to add Smile Packs, the small bags filled with dental hygiene products that dentists give to patients after check-ups, to CFA’s Weekend Snack Packs twice a year. We would also like to make Smile Packs available to young clients when they accompany a parent picking up an emergency food package.  

A big thank you to Fair Lawn Dental Associates and Edgewater Pediatric Dentistry for generously donating the first Smile Packs.  Photos will follow. 

YOU CAN EASILY HELP by asking your dentist to support our Smile Packs initiative.  For more information, please contact: jenniferjohnson@cfanj.org | 201.569.1804 x28
