Magic City Dentistry’s December Food Drive

Since they opened in 2018, Magic City Dentistry has aimed to be a helpful member of the Birmingham community. With a welcoming atmosphere and weekly visits from Vestavia Family Dentistry’s new four-legged team member, Presley, Magic City Denstistry feels more like a hangout spot than your typical dentist’s office.

Part of being a standout member of the community means looking out for your neighbor. So each year during the holiday season, Magic City Dentistry hosts a food drive to benefit the Community Food Bank of Central Alabama.

From now until December 31, you can bring any non-perishable food items to Magic City Dentistry’s office at 2117 1st Avenue North, Birmingham, Alabama 35203.

With your donation, Magic City Dentistry will toss your name into a raffle to win either a FREE Zoom! In-office Teeth Whitening OR a Teeth cleaning & check up!

Benefitting the Community Food Bank of Central Alabama

This year’s food drive will benefit the Community Food Bank of Central Alabama. Not familiar? You should be. They recently joined forces with the United Way of Central Alabama to feed 130 laid off coal miners & their families for the holidays. And that’s not all.

Each year, the Community Food Bank of Central Alabama supplies millions of meals to over 250 food pantries, shelters and children’s programs in 12 counties throughout Central Alabama. In fact, they provide food to over 80,000 at-risk people each month.

Here’s How You Can Help
