Press Release from Mountain State Oral and Facial Surgery
KANAWHA CITY, W.Va. – Mountain State Oral and Facial Surgery’s (MSOFS) nine offices will be collecting non-perishable canned foods starting Monday, July 27, through Friday, Aug. 28, to be donated to local food banks.
Jack Krajekian, DMD, a MSOFS partner, invites patients and the general public to drop off canned foods (soup, chili, stews, canned meat or tuna, assorted vegetables, and beans) at any of its offices throughout West Virginia and Ashland, Ky. He said Mountain State Oral and Facial Surgery will match donations by purchasing an equal number of canned goods to double the effort to meet local food needs.
Dr. Krajekian said “many families are facing difficult times with the adverse health and economic impacts of coronavirus. We want to help our neighbors in need as well as restock food banks that are facing greater demands this year.”
