Birdsong Trust Donates Funds for Dentures

June 2017 | Suffolk, Virginia

Birdsong Trust Fund recently donated $15,000 to Western Tidewater Free Clinic (WTFC) for dentures for Clinic patients. This gift will help 50-75 WTFC dental patients who have gone years with no dental care and desperately need full or partial dentures for better nutrition, enunciation, and employability. John Harrell, Chairman of the Birdsong Trust Fund, says, “Because of the generosity of the Birdsong family members, now going on for three generations, many people will be able to have dentures that could not afford them without the help of the Western Tidewater Free Clinic and gifts like these. We are proud to be a part of making this donation that will help so many.” In the picture are Dr. Leroy Howell, WTFC dental volunteer and Birdsong Trust Fund board member; John Harrell, Birdsong Trust Fund Chairman; Chet Hart, WTFC Executive Director; Dr. Charles Rawls, WTFC staff dentist.
