Mission Possible Dental Clinic Receives $10,000 Grant

The Community Foundation of the Fox River Valley recently awarded a $10,000 grant for the dental clinic at Mission Possible, a downtown Aurora Christian ministry. The grant enables the Mission Possible dentists, led by Dr. Brian O’Donovan of Aurora and Dr. Jim Moore of Yorkville, to purchase equipment to produce digital x-rays for uninsured patients served at this free clinic.

The grant was announced at the grand opening of the ministry’s new dental operatory on Saturday, July 25.  Guests at the grand opening celebration included Rick Guzman, Aurora’s Assistant Chief of Staff and Milton Coronado, a Latino Christian artist and pastor.  At Mission Possible, Pastor Coronado creatively shares Biblical messages through six paintings that grace the facility at 63 South Broadway.

Individuals who do not have insurance coverage and do not meet eligibility requirements for Medicare, Medicaid, disability, veterans, or other governmental health care programs are welcome at Mission Possible.  Dental services are available beginning July 31, on a first come, first served appointment basis for exams, cleanings, extractions, and fillings.  Other Mission Possible health services—medical, vision, and orthopedic clinics—opened earlier this year.  Eligible individuals may schedule appointments by calling 630-801-0086.

Being a part of the Community Foundation scholarship committee is the highlight of my year. For many, a scholarship from the Community Foundation is the reason they are able to continue reaching for their dreams and changing the future of our world. I hope each recipient knows just how inspirational they are to those of us who are lucky enough to read their stories.

Thank you very much for supporting my college education for these four years. I will never be able to repay you for the opportunity that this scholarship has given to me.

[Renewing Scholarship Recipient] Graduate of Hinkley-Big Rock High School

As a first-generation college student from a low-income family, I was worried about how I was going to pay for books and supplies. This scholarship will allow me to focus more on my studies instead of worrying about how to afford college. I am working to not only create opportunities for myself but to motivate future generations. Thank you so much for helping me along this journey!

…you can always start small, even $25 can make a difference. Remember we can’t take our money with us. Even if it’s just your gift of time. Volunteer and get involved.
