Mission Of Mercy
More than 1,000 dentists, hygienists and volunteers will provide $1 million in free care this weekend, part of the Minnesota Mission of Mercy campaign. The 2012 event, held in Mankato, helped 2,062 patients with more than $1.3 million in free dental work.
After day two of Mission of Mercy’s free dental care for the needy outreach event at the Verizon Wireless Center in Mankato, Minn., nearly 1,500 people received free care.
The first two-day free dental clinic in Minnesota started up Friday morning in Mankato, and some people have been lined up since Wednesday night to capitalize on the offer.
