Northeast Delta Dental recently sponsored the Campaign for Legal Services Kick-Off Breakfast. We support NH Legal Aid because it’s important to make the rule of law equally available to everyone. We need a strong, comprehensive support system now, more than ever!
We also believe that everyone deserves a healthy smile. One reason we support NH Legal Aid is because their advocacy increased the ability of low-income families relying on Medicaid to secure dental care for their children, and for their children to receive dental care at an earlier age. We congratulate NH Legal Aid Litigation Director, Kay Drought, for being awarded the NH Bar Association’s 2020 award for Outstanding Service in Public Sector/Public Interest, who led those efforts.
I had the privilege of introducing the client speaker, Marisa, who told her compelling story [17:40 through 26:39]. When she asked for help, she was isolated, living in a small town, and trying to escape an abusive relationship. NH Legal Aid provided support that helped her take back her life. As she regained confidence in herself, she started her own successful business.
Marisa made some excellent points about helping when you can, but also asking for help when you need it. It reminded me of something that Fred Rogers said: “All of us, at some time or other, need help. Whether we’re giving or receiving help, each one of us has something valuable to bring to this world. That’s one of the things that connects us as neighbors—in our own way, each one of us is a giver and a receiver.”
If you are inclined to give, this is a great time, because a group of community leaders will match your gift dollar for dollar up to $20,000. To learn more, here’s a link to the Campaign for Legal Services Kick-Off Breakfast. https://www.youtube.com/watch?reload=9&v=RPB2lalc2dM
