Three Monarch Dental locations in Little Rock join Arkansas Foodbank in the fight against hunger in Pulaski County

LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Nov. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Three Monarch Dental® locations across Little

Rock, Arkansas are joining forces with Arkansas Foodbank, the largest hunger relief organization in the state, to collect food items to be distributed to people in need across Pulaski County. The Share a Smile Food Drive is already underway!

Currently, one in six Arkansans struggles to provide enough food for their family. And 23 percent of the children in this state have limited access to adequate food. Monarch Dental aims to make it easier for people to get the support they need, whether that means affordable dental and orthodontic care or necessary staples to stock their pantry. By turning the Little Rock offices into Share a Smile Food Drive drop-off points, Monarch Dental is making it easier than ever for area residents to make a positive impact on the lives of their neighbors across Pulaski County. The three drop-off locations include:

  • Monarch Dental Little Rock – 10101 Mabelvale Plaza, Ste. 11B
  • Monarch Dental Little Rock – 301 N. Shackleford Road, Ste. B1
  • Monarch Dental North Little Rock – 4909 Warden Road

In an effort to encourage even more people to participate in the food drive, Monarch Dental will be offer anyone who donates five or more non-perishable food items a choice of one of three different discount opportunities.

  • Free exam and X-rays (available to new patients)
  • $100 off dental services
  • $500 off braces

"All of us at Monarch Dental have strong connections to the communities we serve," notes Dr. Richard Smith. "We believe that no one should be left hungry any time of the year, and we're proud to stand together with Arkansas Foodbank to gather much-needed food for our neighbors in need."

Last year, the Monarch Dental office in Fort Smith hosted a food drive that resulted in 8,000 pounds of food donations. The Fort Smith office has challenged the Little Rock locations, as well as several other offices across the state, to beat this number this year.

"Thanks to the generous donations from great local partners like Monarch Dental, we're continuing the fight against hunger in Pulaski County and getting nutritious food into the hands of those who don't have enough to eat," said Nick Bradford from Arkansas Food Bank.

To make a person smile this season and earn valuable discounts of dental and orthodontic treatments, bring five or more non-perishable food items to the three Monarch locations in Little Rock.
