Odessa Texas Cosmetic Dentist Sponsoring Marine Toys for Tots Program to Give Children in Need Free Toys for the Holidays

Dr. Robin Rutherford, a cosmetic dentist in Odessa, Texas, is participating in the popular Toys for Tots program, an annual event designed to help the community’s less fortunate and provide children with toys for the holidays. Donors at Dr. Rutherford’s practice are also entered into a drawing to win a Christmas basket full of prizes.

(Vocus) December 12, 2009 -- It’s that time of the season, and one Odessa cosmetic dentistry practice is in the gift-giving spirit by sponsoring a popular holiday program that gives brand new toys to children in need. From now until December 14th, the Art of Dentistry and Dr. Robin Rutherford are accepting donations of toys and cash for the Marine Toys for Tots program. All donated toys will be picked up on the 14th for later distribution to local children who are less fortunate than others. Any cash donations received will be spent on toys. This is the fourth year that Dr. Rutherford’s practice has participated in the toy drive, and staff members say they are just happy to be a part of it. “It's a privilege and a responsibility to give to those in need. All kiddos deserve a present to open at Christmas time.”

Dr. Rutherford, an established implant dentist serving Midland, Odessa, and the surrounding region, is also entering each donor of a toy or cash into a drawing for a gift basket full of prizes. He says the winning donor does not have to be present for the drawing, and he or she will contacted if their name is chosen. All donations will go to local children around the Permian Basin.

Begun in 1947 by Colonel William L. Hendricks, at the time a Major in the United States Marine Corps Reserve, the Marine Toys for Tots program has collected and distributed toys to needy children for more than 60 years and has drop-off locations in communities large and small all over the nation. Over 400 million toys have been distributed to more than 188 million less fortunate children since the program began. Toys for Tots was designated by the U.S. Secretary of Defense as an official activity of the U.S. Marine Corps and an official mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve in 1995.

Although the toy drive ends on December 14th, staff members at the Art of Dentistry say the office will not close for the holidays until December 18th. Offering a range of dental procedures, such as teeth whitening, orthodontics, and porcelain dental veneers in Odessa, Texas, the Art of Dentistry will re-open on January 4th. The practice will also be reachable through an emergency phone number for those with any dental problems or concerns over the holiday break.

Staff members at the Art of Dentistry say they usually have a nice turn-out for donations to the Toys for Tots program, but they always hope they can do more. “It’s a wonderful expression of care and concern for children that are in need.”
