Throughout December and January, as part of our annual Chuck’s Can’s for Kids program, the Magnolia Dental team and patients gathered cans and donations for the MidOhio Food Bank to help hungry families in Ohio. Chuck’s Cans for Kids began four years ago in honor of Dr. Basom’s late father, Chuck Basom. Chuck was a scholar, local shop owner and devoted father to his seven children.

Chuck believed in helping neighbors and giving to those in need. “My mother and I wanted to do something positive in the community in memory of my Dad,” Dr. Basom explained. “My family and the Magnolia team believe that no child should live with food insecurity – although, sadly, it’s a real issue in Ohio. We plan to continue our program every year and hope it will continue to grow. “On behalf of the entire Magnolia Dental team, THANK YOU to everyone who contributed this year! I know my Dad would be touched to see something positive happening in the community in his name.”

The office canned food drive ended on January 31, but if you would like to donate online, please visit www.midohiofoodbank.org/Magnolia where 100% of all donations go directly to the Mid-Ohio Foodbank.
