The Refugee Hope Partners organization provides emotional and practical support for families in need.
Orthodontist Britt Vinson, DDS, MSD, PA, and his staff at Vinson Orthodontics in Clayton and also Vinson Orthodontics in Wake Forest, NC, are running a fundraiser for Refugee Hope Partners in November and December.
Refugee Hope Partners is a non-profit organization that develops programs to help refugee families in Raleigh and the surrounding communities such as Wake Forest and Clayton. Many families have come from all over the world to reside in the Raleigh area. The Refugee Hope Partners organization provides emotional and practical support for these families, helps equip them with the tools to find independence, and encourages spiritual growth.
The fundraiser, which launched November 1, runs through the end of the year on December 31. Vinson is encouraging patients and their families to contribute cash donations or donate some of their patient reward points, which can typically be redeemed for prizes during orthodontic treatment. The dental provider has also agreed to match all of the points donations to double the contributions to Refugee Hope Partners.
“I really feel this organization does important work, and Refugee Hope Partners is one of many fantastic causes in the area,” says Vinson. “Their programs to support and empower refugees have helped families from over two dozen countries.”
