Opportunities for Kindness

Dental Work Needed For Single Mom


Our partners at One Dublin, formerly known as Welcome Warehouse, came to us on behalf of a single mother of 4 in need of dental work. She has a broken tooth that is at risk of getting infected and is causing the mom a lot of pain. The mother recently had some medical issues related to the birth of her daughter which caused her to become further behind on rent and bills, including the new medical bills. She cannot afford the cost of the tooth repair. We are looking for a local dentist who may be willing to help her out pro bono or at a discounted rate.  If you are a dentist able to help this young mom, please click on I CAN HELP.

Homeless Student in Need of Driving School & License


A guidance counselor at one of our high schools has reached out to us about a student who is currently a senior who is in need of financial assistance for driving school and getting her driver's license.  The student is currently homeless. Having her license would help the family quite a bit.  The driving school has reduced their rate to help this student.  We are hoping to collect a total of $350 to pay for the driving school and driver's license. If you would like to donate to this need, please go to http://bit.ly/nbdublinbridges.
