MARINETTE — Marinette County Elderly Services (MCES) received $1,890 from the Community Wide Fund held at the M&M Area Community Foundation. These funds will support the Healthy Smiles for Seniors Campaign.

These dollars will be used to purchase 200 oral hygiene kits containing products and information to improve the overall health of homebound meal recipients. Many of the seniors have very low income and can’t afford to see a dentist on a regular basis. These kits will aid in the effort to help seniors implement and maintain a healthy life style while promoting independence.

The M&M Area Community Foundation has been supporting their organization for several years with their Nutrition and Transportation Programs and with several special projects.
