Holmes Elementary School

November 22, 2022

BEST continued their mission during Thanksgiving break. This time we brought not only tooth brushing model and oral care kits, but also two eggs soaked in Coke to demonstrate the protection effect of toothpaste. Many thanks to the teachers in Holmes Elementary School for giving us this opportunity to work with their students. We were impressed by the curiosity, attention, and cheerfulness of the young minds. What a wonderful way to start the holiday season! We wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!

Oral Health and Whole Body Health

November 12, 2022

The first joint event with EMBRACE to serve seniors was very memorable. Dr. Tao He, Principal Clinical Scientist from Procter and Gamble, gave an informative talk on the importance of oral health to whole body health, and the proper use of oral hygiene products. This day was also Grandpa Ren's 83rd birthday! We gave him a surprise celebration with gifts and a Happy Birthday song by 50 seniors and volunteers in the room. The BEST and EMBRACE team members baked cookies, cakes, bread, and cooked  bean curd rolls. Two full baskets of fresh-cut flowers from the garden also brought so much joy to our seniors! Watch video

Fighting COVID with Mask Donation

May 9, 2020

BEST donated 500 masks to Kenwood and St. Theresa nursing homes. Recent data revealed 1/3 of virus deaths in America are nursing home residents and workers. Families of nursing home residents have been meeting each other through windows or drive throughs. These masks will allow families to finally see their loved ones.

BEST also donated 200 masks to Red Bank Walmart and the Kroger Marketplace. We hope our resources were able to help these workers who are serving our community during this time.

BEST delivered 300 masks to Mercy West hospital to aid the fight against the Coronavirus.

This ensures that they keep themselves safe and also that they can return to the hospital and keep our patients safe as well.”

BEST fundraised and donated a total of 1450 N95 masks and 20 medically professional sanitizers to the Central Wuhan hospital, the biggest hospital in Wuhan. In fact, not only 300 professionals were already infected there, this was also the hospital where Dr. Li Wenliang, a whistle-blower who recently passed away after warning others of a possible outbreak of coronavirus, worked. Corona is now a global pandemic and we aspire to continue to assist those who are risking their lives in the front line.
