Help Others Beat the Heat This Summer

July 27, 2016

This summer has been a scorcher in the Omaha metro, especially during the month of July. With temperatures in the triple digits, many have been trying to beat the heat by cranking the air conditioning, frequenting swimming pools or staying hydrated with ice cold beverages. With highs like these, we can’t forget those in the metro who have a bit more difficulty beating the heat. Summit Dental Health is a proud to partner with iHeart Media to sponsor Beat the Heat in support of the Open Door Mission.Last week the Open Door Mission handed out over 4,000 bottles of water in ONE day! Summit Dental Health locations in Omaha are drop-off locations through the end of July for the following needed items:

  1. Water: to be handed out to the homeless on days when it’s extremely hot and humid.
  2. Fans: to help low income families in the Heartland who do not have air conditioning.

 

You can also help by hosting a lemonade stand on Community Lemonade Stand Day on July 30. Pick up a lemonade stand kit (includes instructions, lemonade, cups, a poster and sunglasses) at any Summit Dental Health location in the Omaha metro. Let us know the address of your lemonade stand so we can add it to the list and map of lemonade stands throughout the city. To gather some tips for hosting a lemonade stand, check out our blog post on Hosting a Successful Lemonade Stand.
