In an effort to provide much-needed assistance to Oklahoma tornado victims, Darby Dental Supply, LLC, joined forces with students from the Molloy College National Student Speech Language and Hearing Association (NSSLHA) and Molloy American Red Cross Club to contribute a large quantity of supplies to the Oklahoma Dental Association.
Darby provided items such as toothbrushes, toilet tissue, garbage bags and respirator masks to the Oklahoma Dental Association who in turn distributed them to local residents affected by the devastation of the recent tornado. In addition, students from the Molloy College National Student Speech Language and Hearing Association and Molloy American Red Cross Club worked directly with the Oklahoma Red Cross to allocate the items to areas most in need after the storm.
With assistance from the students at Molloy College, Darby was able to provide the supplies toward the recovery effort in a mere two days following the disaster. “We feel it’s our duty to support communities affected by natural disaster in any way that we can,” remarked Liz Meyers, vice president of marketing and purchasing for Darby Dental Supply. “Providing supplies to those affected by the tornado is the least we can do. Our multi-faceted partnership with the students at Molloy College is a perfect extension of our philanthropic efforts that allow us to do even more nationwide."
In the recent years, Darby has adopted a “think globally, act locally” philanthropic philosophy, and has encouraged employees who want to help those affected by the tornado to make a donation to their local Red Cross chapter or the national Red Cross efforts in Oklahoma.
Darby Dental Supply’s past diverse philanthropic efforts include both local and international relief efforts. Most recently, the company placed an emphasis on local Long Island residents who were affected by Hurricane Sandy, as well as providing numerous contributions to U.S. military troops deployed overseas. In addition, Darby provided much-needed medical supplies to a makeshift shelter in Kesennuma, Japan that was devastated by an earthquake and tsunami, and throughout the years, the company has supported various programs sponsored by Physicians for Peace within the United States and internationally.
