The team at South Gables Dental took their cleaning and philanthropic skills to the community of Coral Gables recently, as they participated in Keep Coral Gables Beautiful. The organization is the local affiliate of the Keep America Beautiful and Keep Florida Beautiful organizations.
The mission of the nonprofit is to: promote environmental sustainability and educate the community to take action every day to reduce litter from our open spaces, and waterways, improve recycling effort, and keep our City Beautiful.
In just a few hours, Dr. Lawrence Lesperance and his staff collected nearly 90 pounds from trash around the neighborhood in which his Coral Gables dental practice is located.
“I grew up in this beautiful community – I live here, I work here, and I definitely have fun here! And I want to keep the area as pristine as possible for years to come. Giving back to the community that gives so much to us is rewarding. Plus, it was a fun team building event that enabled us to be active and enjoy the beautiful weather. We took our cleaning talents, usually reserved for our patients, to the streets of Coral Gables,” shared Dr. Lesperance.
