Alan hasn’t smiled in years.
Why? Because an accident at work caused extensive damage to his front teeth.
Not only is it difficult for Alan to smile, but he’s also often in pain and it’s difficult for him to eat.
Nearing 50 years old, he’s worked odd jobs to afford the rent on his small apartment, but he can’t afford much more than that.
Alan has sought assistance from Star Gospel Mission to help visit a dentist.
“Soon as I get my new teeth,” he said, “I’m gonna go eat a big steak!”
Your donation to the Good Cheer Fund will help Alan smile again — and get him a grocery gift card, too.
