A great opportunity for Rotary volunteers!
The Iowa Mission of Mercy is coming to the Mid-America Center September 11th and 12th this year. It is a major event for the metro area where over 200 dentists come to town and do as much free dental work over the course of two days as they can.  People will be coming from across the states of Iowa and Nebraska to receive free dental care.  In years past, we have seen over 1,500 patients and done over $1 million of free dental work.  It travels from city to city in Iowa and it has never been to Council Bluffs before.  The Council Bluffs Mayor and Wendy Schultz have been instrumental in making this come to fruition, and now they would like to enlist the help of the rest of the Rotary district members.

Dentists in Rotary clubs around the metro - if they don't have an Iowa license, they can get a free temporary license at the website below to volunteer.  In addition to recruiting dentists from around Iowa and Nebraska, they will need a couple hundred general volunteers as well to make this a success.  General volunteers would assist in child care, food service, escorting patients, patient registration, conducting exit interviews, runners, waiting area monitors, setting up, and tearing down, to name a few things.  Rotary members are encouraged to participate in this event and help people in the Omaha/Council Bluffs area get a healthier mouth!  Anyone wanting more information or wanting to volunteer or donate can go to www.iowamom.org
