Connecticut Teen Runs Dental-Supplies Drive For Hondurans

An enterprising young lady in Westport, Conn., has enlisted the help of her church in her effort to assist children and adults in Honduras with dental care. High school student Lindsey Baldwin is spending the month of October, National Dental Hygiene month, running a toothbrush and oral care products drive so she can personally deliver them to villagers during a mission trip in February.

Working on behalf of Cape Cares, a humanitarian non-profit organization that sends volunteer teams to its clinics in remote, mountainous areas of Honduras to provide free medical and dental care, Lindsey has set up multiple donation bins in the Westport area — in local pharmacies, dental offices, her father’s workplace, and in the front hallway of Saugatuck Congregational Church, United Church of Christ.
