Wishing you could do something to help victims of Hurricane Harvey? In this 5-minute podcast, Diana Brink, office manager of Bainbridge Island’s Current Dental, offers a way to help victims of Houston’s devastating hurricane.

After a devastating event such as Hurricane Harvey, there is a desperate need for toiletry items (see list, below). Because Current Dental has connections to Houston they’re asking people to bring these items to one of Current Dental’s two offices: Diana and her staff will pack them up into individual kits and ship them to Houston Recovers, the City of Houston Disaster Recovery Center. Since these are generally low-cost items, anyone, including children, can purchase a few and feel they are genuinely helping desperately needy hurricane victims.  

On Bainbridge Island, toiletry items may be taken to the Current Dental office at 213 Madison Ave. N, Suite 100. In Bremerton, their office is at 2625 Wheaton Way, Suite D. For more information, visit  currentdental.com.

Requested items include:

  • Adult and Kids tooth brushes
    Toothpaste, dental floss and mouthwash
    Bar and body soaps
    Shampoo and Conditioner
    Hand sanitizer
    Kleenex (small)
    Nail clippers
    Wash cloths
    Men’s razors and shave cream
    Women’s razors and shave gel
    Feminine hygiene products
    Small toys and stickers
    Cards and notes for victims
