They’re both in the business of bringing beautiful smiles to children’s faces. That is why the jolly old elf, Santa Claus stopped by Emerson Orthodontics in Broken Arrow on Tuesday to visit with patients, his good friend Dr. Clint Emerson and one very special family.
Emerson Orthodontics sponsored a family through James Mission for the holidays and collected dozens of gifts to give to the family of four. The mother, Ashleigh, Jaeleigh –age 7, Zayden – age 4 and Killian- age 1 were also invited to the office for a special lunch with Santa. The afternoon was a joyful and emotional time for everyone involved.
“Words cannot express how thankful we are that we were able to do this. Thank you to everyone who helped provide a special day for this family. We are truly thankful for each and every one of you,” said Dr. Clint Emerson.
James Mission is a non-profit organization with the mission to bring together a diverse group of people with the common desire to serve the foster, the waiting children, the widow and the single mothers and the oppressed in our community and worldwide. James Mission has provided clothing, shoes, toys, toiletries and more to over 2,000 children and adults since 2013. On average they provide for more 60 children a week and continue to grow daily.
Emerson Orthodontics adopted a family in need through James Mission, founded by Joey & Lyndsey Reyes. Our great patients donated gifts and made this event a huge success!
