    For most, a warm coat solves the problem of being cold. But, for nearly 15% of Americans living in poverty, a warm winter coat is a budget “extra.” Health experts report that even a 2-degree drop in body temperature results in reduced heart rate, loss of coordination, and confusion. Adults cannot work effectively, and children find it difficult to learn
     
    “For some families, the expense of providing warm winter gear is impossible. No one should be left to survive the elements of a Wisconsin winter without a coat.  We need to step up and help those in need in our community,” stated Dr. Leslie Showalter.
     
    Rock River Dental is excited to announce our 5th Annual Coat Drive benefiting The Community Space and Jefferson County Human Services Foster Care Program.
    “We are happy to partner with all of these great organizations that serve the underserved, children, low-income families, and the homeless. Our patients and this community have stepped up every year and I have no doubt this year will be any different,” said Amy Larson, Marketing Director, Rock River Dental
     
    Dr. Showalter and staff ask that you join in with helping those in need in the Jefferson County area by donating new or gently used coats and winter gear. Items can be dropped off at Rock River Dental- 1951 Commerce Pkwy on the southside of Fort Atkinson during our regular business hours October 12th - November 5th.
     
    As a token of our appreciation for your donation, we will be having a drawing for a Professional Series Sonicare!
