The AO Smile Squad is excited to announce its first quarter community project!

Between February 17 – 28, all Associated Orthodontists locations will be collecting gently used clothing and household items. All clothing donations will be given to Gifting for Thrifting — a community pop-up store that collects clothing and provides it at no cost to our communities. Gifting for Thrifting will be hosting its next free thrift store on Saturday, March 14th from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Saint Mary’s Parish Center, 303 W. St. Mary’s Street, Minooka. Other collected items will be donated to Rich En Deed, a store open Saturdays and Sundays in Plainfield that allows community members to shop for free.

Current Associated Orthodontists patients that participate in the drive will be entered into a drawing as a thank you for their support. One winner will receive a $50 Amazon gift card, plus an additional winner from each Associated Orthodontists location will win 100 Smile Miles points.

The general public is also welcome to participate, and can drop items off at any Associated Orthodontists location during normal business hours. Participants are encouraged to visit AO’s Google pages or contact their local Associated Orthodontists office to confirm weekly hours of operation.
