The COVID-19 pandemic and resulting stay-at-home order has had a great impact on Arizona’s homeless population. Governor Ducey and his administration have worked tirelessly to provide funds for food banks, homeless shelters and other organizations providing programs and services to the homeless and other at-risk populations. Delta Dental of Arizona joined in these efforts by providing 30,000 toothbrushes and 30,000 tubes of toothpaste to homeless shelters and organizations serving vulnerable populations.
“It’s extremely gratifying to work with the Arizona Dept. of Administration; together we were able to get these much-needed supplies to those who need them,” said Allan Allford, CEO of Delta Dental of Arizona and Chair of the Delta Dental of Arizona Foundation.
The Arizona Department of Administration is distributing the dental supplies, along with donations from a wide variety of other organizations, to 90 organizations across the state.
“The Department of Administration has been honored to contribute to the success of this critical project,” said Andy Tobin, Director, ADOA. “We are thrilled that many of our community partners have stepped up to the plate to donate items to this worthy cause, including our colleagues at Delta Dental of Arizona. Their generous donation has helped to significantly increase the number of citizens that will be able to be served by this important initiative.”
