Bartow Give A Kid A Chance 2013
Our 2013 BGAKAC event is scheduled on Saturday, August 3, 2013! Again many children in Bartow County will be needing a backpack with school supplies, as well as some new clothes and the medical screenings to begin a new school year.
This year we will be having the event at only one central location, the Cartersville Civic Center, which will help consolidate our services and volunteer resources. We are still anticipating 1800-2000 children to be served and they will be scheduled appointments accordingly throughout the day, 8:00am-5:00pm. Again we will have the Colgate Bright Smiles Bright Futures mobile unit on site to help with the dental screenings but they will only be there during the morning hours.
Please go to the new website, bartowgiveakidachance.com and sign up as a dental volunteer and choose if you will work all day or the morning or afternoon session. When you log into the site you will see a volunteer button, then go to the specific dental button. Here you can enter your information including your license number. Once you submit you will receive a confirmation email back to you confirming I have you signed up.
You may plan to bring with you a box of gloves(preferably nitrile), hand sanitizer, and a small flashlight to help with our dental screenings. An event T-shirt is offered and, for those staying all day, a lunch will be provided.
