Free Dental Services, Food distribution Oct. 24

Thanks to our wonderful community partners, we have two great resources to announce: free dental services for students each Friday and free food distribution for families this Saturday.

Free dental services

Dental Health Arlington SMILES program is unable to go into schools this year because of Covid-19, but they are still offering free preventive dental services to students in their clinic. Fifty appointments are available every Friday for Arlington ISD students in grades Pre-K through 12.  Every student will receive a free visual screening, oral hygiene education, sealants, fluoride, and an oral hygiene kit.

Please visit the Dental Health Arlington website to schedule your appointment. All appointments are first come first serve. 

Food distribution

The Texas Rangers Foundation has partnered with Food for the Soul to host a food distribution this Saturday, Oct. 24, from 8-10 a.m., in the Prius Lot F, north of Globe Life Field. More than 1,200 boxes will be distributed. Each 3-in-1 box includes about 30 pounds of fresh produce, dairy and precooked meats.
