Changing Lives Through the Gift of a Smile
Date:8/25/2013

Erie, Pennsylvania (PRWEB) August 26, 2013

When Tehya's family heard about Smile for a Lifetime they were excited about the possibility of their daughter receiving free braces but when she was chosen by the board of directors to receive a scholarship they were overjoyed.

The Erie Chapter of Smile for a Lifetime (S4L) is celebrating their third year of helping children achieve the beautiful smiles they deserve. So far, they have served 15 children and by the end of 2013, they will have three more children in treatment including Tehya.

Smile for a Lifetime (S4L) is a national organization that serves some 1,200 children a year in various locations across North America.

Sarah was the first scholar to have her braces removed to see her winning smile since the inception o
