123Dentist was proud to sponsor a Day of Meals at Union Gospel Mission in downtown Vancouver on August 16, 2019.
In addition to paying the cost of the meals, teams of volunteers from 123Dentist member clinics volunteered their time to work UGM’s frontlines, preparing, cooking, and serving meals to hundreds of people struggling with poverty, homelessness, and addiction.
Our team members were also privileged to receive an exclusive tour of UGM’s purpose-built facility, learning about UGM’s rich history, and the programs 123Dentist’s partnership with UGM is supporting.
With each plate our team members served, they were fortunate to meet inspiring individuals who exemplify just how significant our sponsorship is.
Thank you to the teams who volunteered – thank you to 123Dentist for the sponsorship – and thank you Union Gospel Mission for the important work you do every day of the year.
