Alpha Omega GOHI Project by AO GOHI - about 1 year ago
"Over 50 volunteers from the Alpha Omega International Dental Fraternity enthusiastically participated in the Phoenix Salvation Army Christmas Dinner Program on December 25, 2012. The day brought together many local community volunteers to serve meals to over 4,500 people. Each December, Alpha Omega holds an annual convention for its members and families. This year, Scottsdale, Arizona was chosen location, affording Alpha Omega members the opportunity to serve the community as volunteers, helping to prepare and serve Christmas dinner. AO's participation in the Phoenix Salvation Army Christmas Dinner Program was spurred by its ongoing effort to promote its Global Oral Health Initiative (GOHI). GOHI encourages AO members and their families to help heal the world through volunteering in local communities. Alpha Omega's Global Oral Health Initiative is the umbrella program under which all Alpha Omega philanthropic activity falls. It is composed of many parts which include fundraising by AO foundations and trusts, global outreach to third world nations, the enhancement of dental education and research by supporting institutions of higher learning, the fostering of volunteerism consistent with the values of Tikun Olam (healing the world), and the promotion of health as a means for establishing diplomatic partnerships and encouraging peace. For further information on these activities, please contact Heidi Weber, Executive Director, at 301-738-6400. I received a Custom Ink catalog in the mail and immediately liked the logo. I liked the product offerings and website. Very easy to order. "
