Designed to raise awareness and collect oral care products for at-risk children and teens, the America’s ToothFairy Smile Drive will be held this February, National Children’s Dental Health Month. Okanogan County 4-H with America’s ToothFairy are leading campaign activities in Omak.

With participation from 3,900 Walmart locations, the America’s ToothFairy Smile Drive will promote oral health for families across the nation.  Local community members can visit their local Walmart® to drop off donated oral care products for local at-risk youth in the America’s ToothFairy Smile Drive Box and pick up their free Kid’s Activity Packs including America’s ToothFairy Kids Club free membership cards, ToothFairy 101® educational activities for children and coupons from Walmart, Crest and Oral-B. Patrons donating to the America’s ToothFairy Smile Drive can share their experience by snapping a selfie and using the hashtag #SmileDrive2014 on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

Okanogan County 4-H with America’s ToothFairy will have a “Meet the ToothFairy” booth at Walmart located on 902 Engh Rd. in Omak,  March 20th from 3p.m. until 7 p.m. to promote children’s oral health and encourage donations.  Donated toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss and rinse will benefit America’s ToothFairy affiliate, Okanogan County 4-H.
