GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.) Nov. 29, 2012 — In the spirit of holiday giving, Plackers, a leading brand of oral care products, has donated more than 75,000 of its popular Micro Mint® disposable flossers for families staying at Ronald McDonald Houses in Texas, California, Louisiana and Missouri.
Through its Ronald McDonald House® programs, Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC®) provides comfort, compassion and vital resources in a home-like environment for families with critically ill or injured children traveling to receive necessary care. Donations like these from Plackers aid in the mission of RMHC by offering basic toiletries and necessities to visiting families so they don’t have to pack or shop for them.
“For years, our mission has been to help people take care of their smiles and make good oral care easy and convenient for families,” said Plackers Marketing Manager Brett Huffman. “We hope our donation will help Ronald McDonald House visitors smile, even during a difficult time.”
Plackers, which holds the patent on the first disposable flosser, makes innovative oral care products for the whole family, including a range of flossers that are engineered not to stretch, shred or break, as well as interdental brushes, Grind No More® night protectors and more.
