In 2018, Helping Hands of Tennessee launched the Spring into Health event. The first event offered dental screenings, health screenings and a host of other resources and services. Spring into Health is sponsored thanks to the Melvin Wright fund for Helping Hands, individual and corporate sponsors. 100% of all donations through the Melvin Wright fund for Helping Hands goes towards providing dental vouchers to low income individuals throughout the West Tennessee region.  


Special thanks to the many volunteers and sponsors for making this event possible.  

Please consider sponsoring to the Melvin Wright fund for Helping Hands.  Your donation is used to provide dental vouchers, equipment needed for events and supplies.  There is nothing worse than having dental pain without any means to afford to visit the dentist.  Your donation make it possible for low income individuals to get out of tooth pain and get access to a dentist.  Thank you in advance for your generosity and consideration.
