The Rice County Smile Drive is taking place now until March 30th as part of a national drive called the America's ToothFairy Smile Drive! The Rice County Smile Drive is being lead by the Rice County Early Childhood Dental Network in Faribault and Northfield. Help under-served kids get the smile they deserve by donating kids toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss, and mouthwash. There are multiple drop-off locations, including our radio station! Other drop-off spots include the Faribault Community Center, the KYMN radio station in Northfield, and the Youth Wing of the NCRC in Northfield. There will be boxes at each location for donations.

Donations are being distributed to community food shelves as well as Community Schools, Head Starts, and any other community organization that wishes to promote good oral health to children in need. When you donate, snap a photo and share on social media with #SmileDrive! Help spread the word!

If you would like more information about the Smile Drive and how you can participate, call Ellen Haefner at (507) 664-3654. You can also visit the national website at
