Rock River Dental Holds Coat Drive

    October 28, 2019

    For most, a warm coat solves a problem, 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. It is up to us to help the people in our community,” stated Dr. Leslie Showalter. 

    Rock River Dental is excited to announce our upcoming Annual Coat Drive benefiting the Community Action Coalition of Jefferson Co., New Beginnings APFV, and Jefferson County Human Services

    “We are happy to partner with all of these great organizations that serve the underserved; children, low-income families, homeless, domestic abuse victims and the elderly,” said Amy Larson, Marketing Director, Rock River Dental

    Dr. Showalter and staff ask that you join in with helping out those in need in Jefferson County area by donating your 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 on October 9th - November 12th. New this year, we will be collecting coats at the Fort Holiday Parade on November 9th. Coats will be distributed to the different organizations as needed on November 13th. 

    As a token of our appreciation, you will receive a raffle ticket for each item you donate which will give you a chance to win a Professional Series Sonicare!
