We supported 1000 Smiles in Ensenada, Mexico.
1000 Smiles Foundation provides oral surgery to underserved children in Mexico and Costa Rica. Members of SILJ worked with this experienced organization of surgeons and their volunteers to assist with snacks, beverages and crafts for the families while the children are being attended to. Helping these families get through a trying day was a very rewarding experience for our members.
We sponsored a career day at the YMCA for women in transition.
SILJ arranged for workshops on creating resumes, job hunting and grooming. We also collected gently used business clothing from which the attendees could choose as their own to wear on interviews.
