Everytime the Christmas season comes around, one special event that Specialist Dental Group looks forward to is the annual Canadian Christmas Teddy Bear Drive organized by the Canadian Assocation of Singapore (CAS).
Currently in its 5th year, the CAS has raised about $100,000 over the years for the KK Hospital Health Endowment Fund (KKHHEF). The KKHHEF provides financial support towards needy patients, as well as education, research and disease prevention programmes targeted at women’s and children’s health.
Apart from the fundraising aspect of the Teddy Bear Drive, one fun (and meaningful) aspect is to collect teddy bears to be distributed to each child patient at the KK Hospital to cheer them up during the Christmas season. The look on children’s faces when they receive the bears from volunteers is simply priceless.
Specialist Dental Group is proud to be one of the sponsors of the CAS Teddy Bear Drive. Our clinic has been involved in a corporate or individual capacity for the past four years.
