SBL Volunteer Guild Donate to SBL Mobile Miracles Campaign

October 8, 2019 2:18 p.m.

The Sarah Bush Lincoln Volunteer Guild recently donated $50,000 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. It also donated an additional $10,000 to benefit the new Surgery Center construction.

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.

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.

For more information about this campaign or to make a donation, contact Amy Card, director, SBL Health Foundation, at 217 258-2511 or acard@sblhs.org.
