El Paso Dentist Continues to Fight Hunger


El Paso dentist Dr. Mehrnoosh Darj is raising donations for a local food pantry and helping people improve their dental health by lowering their dental bill.

Dr. Darj launched a Food Drive that ended on January 1st, 2015. She invited the community to participate by bringing non-perishable food donations to one of her 3 dental offices. Each person was rewarded with a $39 Dental Cleaning, Exam and X-rays.

Dr. Darj collected over $1000 worth of food, and donated it together with all the money from the dental cleaning special to El Pasoans Fighting Hunger to help people in need.

Due to the great response, the El Paso dentist decided to extend the Food Drive and is accepting food donations until Jan 31st, 2015.

Dr Darj explained, “It is a growing problem. Food demands at the local food pantries have increased and yet food donations have decreased. Food Banks need help all year round I we all can help them together.”

Among the hungry in America is 47 million children. This is very alarming,” said Dr Darj, a dentist in El Paso.

Dr Darj is encouraging her patients to bring non-perishable food donations, and offering the dental cleaning, exam and x-rays for only $39. And all of the $39 and food will go to the local food bank: El Pasoans Fighting Hunger.

When asked why she would give such a discount and donate all the proceeds, Dr Darj said, “Local communities are strong not because of money but because of the free spirit of helping one’s neighbors. In a troubled economy that affects many Americans, if I could get the public to help the hungry families while getting their basic dental work done, why not?

I would like to thank everyone that participated and I to ask everyone who now knows about our program to spread the word to their friends and neighbors. The more people know about this effort, the more needy families can receive aid, El Paso TX dentist Dr. Darj concluded.
