Day of Caring
Day of Caring for Mission of Mercy
Theresa Coscia, Shelby Accounting Manager, recently participated in a two-day free dental clinic sponsored by Mid-South Mission of Mercy (MidMOM). MidMOM provides much needed services to people living in Memphis and the surrounding area, many from working families who do not have access to dental insurance. This event was held in February in Cordova, TN at Bellevue Baptist Church.
All dental services are provided free of charge by Dental Association members from Tennessee, Mississippi, and Arkansas. The dentists combined their efforts with a host of volunteers who assisted with the procedures. Over the two days, more than two thousand patients were treated with over $1.1 million in free dental care provided.
Theresa shares her story: "My husband, Al, and I were privileged to be a part of MidMOM. The many wonderful dental professionals met the physical needs of people. God used us to meet spiritual and emotional needs and share the love of Jesus. The picture shows our new friend Kel, who received a new set of front teeth. We were excited to be his advocates during the replacement process, and we all praised God for the dental care he received, for his restored confidence and faith, and for his gratitude. We are thankful to be part of this ministry and to give glory and honor to God for the many blessings of this ministry. We loved serving and hope to go back next year to MidMOM. My thanks to Ministry Brands for supporting employees with the Volunteer Paid Time Off Program."
