Redskins linebacker, Lorenzo Alexander, brought in his daughter Zoie to show parents how to care for their children’s teeth.  Teaching children good dental habits at a young age reduces the fear of going to the dentist and creates a lifetime of healthy smiles.

FAIRFAX, VA. (October 5, 2010) – Fairfax-based non-profit Our Daily Bread, Inc. (ODB) announces the launch of its 2010 Holiday Program to assist needy families in the Fairfax County area. The organization is seeking individuals, families, companies and community groups to “sponsor” eligible families by providing a Thanksgiving meal, December holiday meal and gifts for children.

ODB operates the Holiday Program through a grant from the Fairfax County Department of Neighborhood and Community Services. Coordinating closely with social workers and community-based organizations who serve families throughout the County, ODB works to ensure that as many eligible families as possible who have been identified as having a great need are able to receive holiday assistance.
