SUWANEE SENDS SANTA TO THE TROOPS
Imagix Dental Gets In the Christmas Spirit
Soldiers across the globe might not be home for Christmas this year, but Christmas will come to them. Imagix Dental of Suwannee is partnering with Give2TheTroops (G2TT) and Hugs for Soldiers to make sure soldiers overseas will be getting the most needed items on their Christmas lists. Imagix Dental Office manager Lindy Rodriguez said patients and non-patients can drop off items in the boxes provided in the Imagix office lobby from October 25th through December 1st.
“We really want everyone who is serving our country to know they are thought about over here,” Rodriguez said. “We have a lot of patients who at least know someone over there, so we want to try and reach out as much as possible to help the community.”
Members of the Suwannee community are encouraged to bring items from the approved G2TT /Hugs for soldiers lists to the Imagix Dental of Suwannee office at 350 Town Center Avenue, Suite 301 during office hours. Imagix is open Monday from 9am – 5pm, Tuesday through Thursday from 8am – 5pm and Friday from 7am – 2pm. Some of the suggested items are toiletries, handwritten cards, letters, inspirational books, stationary, board games, baseball hats, instant soup, popcorn, granola, beef jerky and sunscreen. For a full list of acceptable/approved items to donate, visit Give2TheTroops and hugsforsoliders websites.
