Brushes for Smiles!!!
The Gorton community will join the ‘Brushes for Smiles” project and support Amanda Guy, a student from Valhalla High School, collect toothbrushes for the United Nations LINKS program.   The donation of toothbrushes is part of Gorton’s #Giving Tuesday campaign. Toothbrushes will be sent to provide good health and well-being to those countries in need.  The goal of this program is to collect as many toothbrushes as possible and raise awareness. Gorton students will present the collected toothbrushes on Tuesday, December 1st, 1:30 p.m., in the Library to Amanda Guy and members of the Valhalla Whitney M. Young Jr. Society Club.    

Great American Smoke Out 
About 42 million Americans still smoke cigarettes, and tobacco use remains the single largest preventable cause of disease and premature death in the United States.

By quitting — even for one day — you will be taking an important step toward a healthier life — one that can lead to reducing your cancer risk. It’s a race for your health, and it starts today. Today’s the day that quitters win.
