What's Happening

  • Hogan Chevrolet and the Scarborough Sharks Girls Hockey Association have teamed up to fight hunger this Christmas and, together, they collected a giant box filled with food for the Daily Bread Food Bank.

    They have decided to continue collecting non-perishable foods until the end of 2014 and invite everyone to help in their quest, by dropping off a food donation at Hogan Chevrolet Buick GMC - 5000 Sheppard Avenue East, between McCowan and Markham Roads.

  • Dentistry from the Heart – a program that has spread around the world will take place in our neighbourhood this year, for the first time.

    This program is designed to provide a day of free dental services for anyone who needs it.

    On Sunday July 20/14, free dental services will be provided by Sheppard Village Dental, Suite 208, 4651 Sheppard Avenue East on the southeast corner of McCowan & Sheppard.

    People needing dental services can simply go to the Sheppard Village Dental office on July 20 and will be treated on a ‘first come’ basis, throughout that day.

    Sheppard Village Dental guarantees that a minimum of 50 people will receive free dental treatment at their office, on July 20

    Twelve dentists, dental hygienists and staff – all volunteers – will provide the services that day.

    With a growing number of Canadians lacking dental insurance, Dr. Malkit Brach and his associates believe this will be an effective way to address some potential health problems, while also giving back to our community.

    For further information, contact Kal Brach: brach@rogers.com or 416-293-5155.
