Dentist takes up collection for Giving Closet
Posted on 11/14/2017

Dr. Mike Price delivered several boxes of personal hygiene items to the Giving Closet on Thursday, Nov. 9, after taking up a month-long collection at his clinic, the Family Dentistry of Poplar Bluff. 

One patient of the dental office included 24 bars of homemade soap with a note that read: “When I was in high school, my dad had a terrible accident and lost his left arm. We got a care basket during Christmas – it was all we had then.” 

Price said his hope is for beneficiaries of the Giving Closet to one day pay it forward when they are in a position to do so. The Giving Closet was established at Poplar Bluff High School last year under the Bright Futures banner to help students in need with clothing, toiletries and classroom supplies.
