We are proud to be able to serve families and children that were displaced by the hurricane," Dr. Jeffrey Feingold, Chairman and CEO of MCNA Dental. "We thank those who organized this important event and the rest of our community partners who joined MCNA Dental to help."

Health fair participants included the Alief Independent School District, University of Texas Schools of Public Health, Dentistry and Nursing, the American Red Cross, Texas Star Alliance, UPS and FEMA. Over 200 free dental screenings and flu shots were provided by the UTHealth School of Dentistry and UT physicians.

In response to the destruction caused by Hurricane Harvey, MCNA Dental made a $500,000 donation to the Rebuild Texas Fund.

"We are Texans and we are committed to helping our communities during this time of crisis and contributing to the long-term rebuilding efforts. We commend Governor Abbott for his guidance and leadership during this disaster, and encourage everyone to support his call to raise $100 million to help Texas on its road to recovery," said Dr. Feingold, Chairman and CEO of MCNA.

MCNA Insurance Company is based in San Antonio with over 300 Texas employees. The company provides dental benefits to nearly 1.5 million children in the Texas Medicaid and CHIP programs, and serves over 4 million members nationwide. It has established multiple channels of giving with our existing community partners to provide immediate funds and basic necessities directly to individuals and network dentists in the most heavily impacted areas of Texas.

"In addition to our donation to the Rebuild Texas Fund, we wanted to make sure that people displaced by Hurricane Harvey had essential supplies and access to oral hygiene products such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, and dental floss," said Dr. Feingold. "Our donations of funds and supplies through our partner organizations are helping restore hope to the thousands of people impacted by this hurricane."
