At South Surrey Smiles, we feel like our job is to not only create beautiful smiles, but to give people a reason to show off those smiles as well. One of the ways we like to do this is by volunteering at an annual pancake breakfast held for students at a local inner city school. This year, three of our wonderful team members, Deanne, Carling and Brigitte, put on their South Surrey Smiles aprons and got to work helping make and serve about 750 pancakes to students and their family members. Talk about a big breakfast!
We have participated in Forsyth Elementary annual pancake breakfast for a few years now thanks to the help of one of our patients, Jennifer P. who helped organize the event and our sponsorship with the school. Each year the team members from our office who are able to volunteer are delighted by how happy and appreciative all the students are when they are served their pancake breakfast. The extra little treat goes a long way towards spreading holiday cheer throughout the school and into the community, and we are always happy to be a part of that tradition.
With so much fun and excitement this time of year, we like to remind ourselves that the best way to enjoy the holidays and get in the spirit of the season is to be generous and help make someone else’s day a little brighter. That is why events like our annual pancake breakfasts are so important to us, since they are a fun and rewarding way to give back to the community where we have enjoyed so much success over the years. It is our hope that we will be able to continue participating in fantastic community traditions like these, so we can continue to give people of all ages reasons to smile. From all of us at South Surrey Smiles, we wish you and your loved ones a happy holiday and we look forward to seeing your smiles in the New Year!
