Monday, October 20, 2014
October 2014 – The University National Bank is proud to support the Douglas County Dental Clinic. The Douglas County Dental Clinic is a non-profit community dental clinic serving the residents of Douglas and surrounding counties. The organization’s mission is to provide quality dental care to low income and uninsured residents. The group began their work in 1998 as the Douglas County Dental Coalition. After organizing and finding funding to start the clinic, the group saw its first patients in 2001. Since then, the staff has grown to include 17 members, including two full-time dentists, 1 part-time dentist, and three extended care permit hygienists. The clinic is located at 2210 Yale Road.

About The University National Bank’s Quarterly Giving Program: Each quarter, UNB selects a local charity they wish to support. Throughout the quarter, a community bulletin board displays information about the charity and UNB employees collect donations from customers and community members. In addition, UNB staff contributes donations by hosting several “Jeans Days.” At the end of the quarter, a check for the lump sum of the donations is presented to the charity and the members of the organization have the opportunity to tell the staff more about its efforts, goals, and additional philanthropic opportunities.
