HELP US HELP SACRED HEART CELEBRATE THEIR 50TH BIRTHDAY
Over thirty years ago I began supporting Sacred Heart Community Services of San Jose. I was impressed by their mission statement, which reads:
“Our mission is to build a community free from poverty by creating hope, opportunity, and action. We provide essential services, empower people to improve their lives, advocate for justice, and inspire volunteers to love, serve, and share.” Their goal truly is to help their customers obtain self-sufficiency.
In 2004, at a Heart of Gold reception honoring volunteers, I met their Director, Amari Romero Thomas. She shared with me the results of their community needs survey which listed dental services as a top priority. With her guidance, I developed the Gift of Dentistry program (yes, the initials do spell GOD,) that helped their customers improve their smiles so they felt confident when they went on job interviews. In 2010, I was interviewed by ABC news as part of their ABC Salutes segment. If you would like to see the interview, simply search Dr. Hilton Sacred Heart ABC news.
Now that I exclusively treat people for sleep apnea, I am helping Sacred Heart in a different way through our Rewards Program.
Our Rewards Program works like this: If you refer someone to me and they get a sleep retainer, or if you should need a new one, I will give you a gift card worth $250.00. I will also donate an additional $250.00 to Sacred Heart. My goal is to donate $10,000 in 2014. All you have to do is call our office or e-mail or fax the contact information for the person you want to refer, and we will do the rest.
