Magnolia Dental Partners with Mid-Ohio Food Bank to Help Hungry Families This Holiday Season
The Holidays are a time of joy and celebration. But for many Ohio families, there is a struggle to make ends meet and put food on the table. In fact, 1 in 4 Ohio children and 1 in 6 Ohioans is at risk of hunger.
To help families living with food insecurity, Magnolia Dental is again partnering with Mid-Ohio Foodbank to collect non-perishable food items and online donations throughout December. The owner of Magnolia Dental, Dr. Bryan Basom, started the 6th annual food drive, “Chuck B’s Cans for Kids,” to honor his late father Chuck Basom, a scholar, local shop owner and devoted father to his seven children.
“My father believed in helping neighbors & giving to those in need”
“It was important to him to give back to the community whether it was employing those with special needs or giving away food to those in need during the Holidays,” said Dr. Basom. “He often gave away free pizza to people having financial difficulties and if someone was trying to get back on their feet and needed a job, he would hire them – including those with prison records because he believed in second chances. This food drive honors his giving spirit.”
