Darby Dental Supply will donate thousands of supplies to support disaster relief efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian. The company is working with the Miami Fire-Rescue Division of Emergency Management to coordinate the delivery of toothbrushes, toothpaste, medical gloves, scrubs, shirts, and other dental supplies to impacted areas in the Bahamas. The total donation was enough to fill a 40-foot shipping container.
“We hope this donation will provide much needed relief to those suffering and impacted by this devastating storm,” said Jill Halpin, vice president of human resources at Darby Dental Supply. “A huge thank you to our account manager, Fran Reilly, and to those in our Deerfield Beach, Florida, office for their help in organizing these relief efforts. Within three days of the disaster, our Florida team quickly banded together to collect enough donations to fill an SUV.”
“When I heard how much Darby is donating, it brought me to tears,” said Reilly, who first connected Darby with the Miami Fire-Rescue Division of Emergency Management,. “This is so very important and makes me so proud to be a part of the Darby family.”
Through “Moving Forward, Giving Back,” the company’s corporate social responsibility mantra, Darby and its employees strive to make a positive environmental and social impact on the world, the company said. This donation reflects Darby’s commitment to strengthen local and global communities through advocacy efforts, employee involvement, and raising awareness for those in need, according to the company.
