    Rock River Dental Holds Third Annual Coat Drive

    October 06, 2020

    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 3rd 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. The need may be greater than ever this year because of so many people losing their jobs due to the pandemic,” said Amy Larson, Marketing Director, Rock River Dental

    Dr. Showalter and staff ask that you join in with helping out 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 5th - November 5th. As a token of our appreciation for your donation, we will be having a drawing for a Professional Series Sonicare! This year, due to the current health crisis, we will be leaving the donation bin and drawing box in our front entryway. We ask that you do not enter our lobby while donating if you do not have a dental appointment or without calling first.

    For more information on the recipients of your donations please see the links below. Please contact Rock River Dental at 920-563-4415 with any additional questions.
