UNITED WE SMILE GROUNDBREAKING CEREMONY
United Way of Northwest Michigan (UWNWMI) held a groundbreaking ceremony for their new community program United We Smile (UWS) on May 4, 2023. Along with UWNWMI staff, in attendance were local government and business leaders, and the general contractor Cunningham-Limp. The assembled group took turns swinging sledge hammers to start the demolition and rebuilding process. United We Smile plans on opening their dental clinic in early fall.
“Sledge hammers signify that we are breaking down the barriers and bringing access to dental care for those who need it most,” shared Jennifer Kerns, UWNWMI Director of Health Initiatives. UWS will provide specialized health programming with a focus on dental care for children, pregnant women, veterans, and those with developmental and cognitive disabilities.
