Allegany Dental Staff volunteered time

October was a busy month for the staff and doctors at Allegany Dental. They volunteered their time to help with the Women Build Habitat for Humanity House. Also, the staff presented a check for $500 to Breast Cancer Awareness-Cumberland Valley as a result of their fundraising efforts. For the past year, they had the opportunity to "Wear Pink for a Cause" once a month and donate $5.

This year, Allegany Dental Care will be a drop-off location for Toys for Tots. So, please feel free to drop off your toy donation. In December, the community support efforts will continue as staff members and doctors will be wrapping gifts at the Valley Mall for the American Red Cross.
