Health & Disease

This is a three part project:

  1. Companion Pets for Military Vets, where Rotarians will help facilitate and offer financial support to veterans who wish to enhance their lives by adopting a dog. Atlanta Humane Society,
  2. Community Outreach, where on the First Thursday night of the month, we take Mellow Mushroom Pizza to the Vets at Shepherd Center's SHARE.
  3. Community Outreach, where on the Second Sunday of each month, guests from the Shepherd Center’s SHARE initiative will be our guests at the Atlanta Humane Society, where they can enjoy time in the community and have the therapeutic benefit of time with dogs or cats.

GMOM is a free two-day dental clinic sponsored by the Georgia Dental Association and the Georgia Dental Association Foundation for Oral Health, which will be held on August 12-13, 2011, at the First Baptist Church of Woodstock. GMOM is a mission trip in our own backyard – no passport required! It is a chance to give back to our fellow Georgians who may have fallen on hard times during this economic recession or who otherwise can’t afford to come to a private office for dental services. This is a chance for Buckhead Rotary to make a difference in someone’s life and help give them back their smile and self-esteem. GMOM is not the answer to solving the dental care needs of the low-income adults in our communities, but it is a start. This is Georgians Helping Georgians to Make Caring Visible!
