In February the Infant Welfare Society of Chicago promoted National Children's Dental Health Awareness month, as sponsored nationally by the American Dental Association. To support their efforts to raise awareness about the importance of oral health, the Wheaton Auxiliary assembled 144 bags of dental supplies for the families serviced by the Angel Harvey Clinic in Chicago.
The Wheaton Auxiliary of the Infant Welfare Society of Chicago thanks Bauer and Bauer Dental of Wheaton for donating ten cases of toothbrushes, Crest toothpaste, and mouth wash to the Angel Harvey Family Health Center for their Pediatric Dentistry Easter bags. This is the second year in a row Bauer & Bauer Dentistry and Orthodontics has surpassed our expectations. We thank you for your kindness and generosity!

Ways That Members Help Support the Infant Welfare Society of Chicago
Dr. Sheila Hall, from the IWS's Angel Harvey Clinic in Chicago, is committed to dental health. She provides dental services daily and makes a point to inform parents about the many ways to keep their teeth, as well as their children’s, healthy and strong.
Thanks also to members Char Connell and Jean Blumthal for chairing this project and to Kathy McKenna for securing a donation of pediatric dental items for the dental kit bags.
The Wheaton Auxiliary of the Infant Welfare Society of Chicago is proud to announce that Laura Virgilio, 2018 graduate from Wheaton-Warrenville South High School, is the recipient of our yearly scholarship. Each year, the Wheaton Infant Welfare Auxiliary awards a monetary scholarship to a senior from either Wheaton North or Wheaton/Warrenville South High School who has demonstrated their dedication to volunteerism during their high school years as it relates to their school and outside school volunteer efforts.

One hundred bags of dry ingredients to make bean soup were assembled and delivered to Infant Welfare of Chicago's Angel Harvey Clinic to be distributed to families being serviced by the clinic. Thank you to Jewel at Danada in Wheaton and to Valli Produce of Glendale Heights for their help in our purchasing the canned tomatoes and the 16-bean dry soup mix needed to complete the bean soup sets.
