Kathleen's story explains why we're doing the Apple Project. The story
is an excellent example of why students or adults are willing to
raise money for The Apple Project, our effort to get a free dental
clinic built in Jacksonville for low income, uninsured families.

About the Apple Project
Thousands of people on the First Coast can't afford a dentist. We desperately need a dental clinic for low income children and adults.
First Coast News is partnering with the non-profit Community Health Outreach to build a brand new dental clinic. If we can raise the funds, the clinic could open in the fall of 2014.
Right away, it would serve 6,000 patients and in the near future 20,000 patients, people who need everything from antibiotics for a tooth infection to a rotten tooth pulled to new teeth.
Haskell has already designed the building at no cost.
How can we make this happen? The Weaver Challenge Grant
We have an exciting opportunity. Delores and Wayne Weaver, through the Weaver Foundation, are continuing their community support from their Jaguars days. The foundation is offering to match every dollar donated up to $100,000.
So if you give $10, you're actually giving $20 because of the Weaver match.

always pay for dental.
