A child sleeping on a cold floor with nothing but a sheet to keep him warm. A newborn baby lying on a dirty mattress because she has no crib. Mothers in despair because they are unable to provide a basic necessity for their children.
These are the faces of Secret Smiles.
Our mission is simple. Secret Smiles of Dayton provides beds, cribs and bedding to those in our community who are without. We have located hundreds of children who now, thanks to your generosity, have new beds as well as sheets, blankets, pillows and comforters to keep them warm at night in a special place all their own.
This past year we have seen tremendous growth due to continued community support and witnessed first hand that everyone is capable of making a difference in many extraordinary ways. Friends and strangers have eagerly helped to make deliveries to our needy families; local businesses and organizations have supported us with donations and in-kind gifts for our fundraisers, children have forgone birthday gifts and have asked, instead, that donations be made to Secret Smiles of Dayton. Others have supported us with monetary donations and/or by attending one of our many fundraisers.
With each donation we receive, virtually 100% goes directly out into our community in support of Secret Smiles’ mission. We have created a charitable organization that is not burdened with administrative costs such as salaries or other compensation because we are staffed only with concerned volunteers. The result, more smiles for our recipients!
Thank you for your continued support of Secret Smiles of Dayton. Our passion and your generosity will transform lives!
