Brightening Smiles and Improving Health

In Cedar Rapids, Iowa, the Jessie Ball duPont Fund has long partnered with St. Pius X Catholic Church in  supporting the needs of vulnerable people and families. In particular, the two institutions have supported the Community Health Free Clinic, where the uninsured receive free health and dental care.

Earlier this year, the Fund and St. Pius partnered in specific support of the dental clinic, where more than 1,000 patients each year receive fillings, extractions and basic dental care.
