Jeremy Yost, Illinois Affordable Housing/Hilton Garden Inn & Conference Center, recently donated $1,000 to the Sarah Bush Lincoln Health Foundation to benefit “Mobile Miracles,” a campaign to fund the purchase of a new dental bus. The bus will travel across the region providing preventive and restorative care and oral hygiene education to underserved children up to age 18.
The bus will replace the now-inoperable one that was purchased in 2008. SBL Dental Services staff provides care to uninsured children, those who receive benefits through Medicaid/AllKids and those whose parents have no means of transportation to a dentist.
All donors making gifts of $15,000 or more will be recognized on the exterior of the new bus that is expected to cost $600,000.
For more information about this campaign or to make a donation, contact Amy Card, director, SBL Health Foundation, at 217 258- or 348-2511 or [email protected].
