We Serve Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County
PDS® team members help spread smiles
Volunteers from Patient Relations at Pacific Dental Services® joined the We Serve Nation on Wednesday, June 2 to help at Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County. Cans came in bunches and the team formed a mini assembly line to help load boxes. Items ranging from canned and boxed goods to non-food items like toothbrushes and toothpaste were sorted into organized boxes.
There are more than 350,000 people in Orange County who don’t know where their next meal is. Knowing our efforts would help put a dent in that number made the day more than gratifying and worth every minute!
At the end of our time, we all felt a sense of fulfillment knowing this was a significant step towards ending hunger in Orange County. One of PDS’ newest employees was part of the crew, and summed up the effort saying, “As this was my second day here at Pacific Dental Services, it is an experience and impression that is immeasurable and will never be forgotten.”
