The Advocate Safehouse Project would like to thank Dr. Jim and Marilyn Cummins and all the individuals who participated in the full mouth bleaching offered through Dr. Cummins office this past holiday season.With the Cumminses assistance over the past three years, they have helped to raised over $12,500 for the Advocate Safehouse Project, especially in a time when other funding has shrunk.The Cumminses have certainly brightened many smiles in the valley through their generosity and have made a true difference for the families we serve at the Advocate Safehouse Project. Thank you again for your support.Warmly,Julie OlsonExecutive director Advocate Safehouse Project

I have always been amazed at the kind and generous hearts we have here in Garfield County. I recently ran my second annual toothbrush drive for children and adults. I was able to reach hundreds of teeth because of the kind and generous donation of Dr. Jim Cummins and staff.Toothbrushes tend to be the last thing families in need buy. They tend to use one toothbrush for the entire family. Jim and Marilyn Cummins funded the money needed to buy the brushes.Amber Wissing was wonderful in her efforts of finding funds, requesting the brushes and delivery. LeeAnn Record headed up the paperwork and shipped out the list. This valley is a wonderful place to live, and I know with it being a small village, the generous get asked all the time for help. It is people like the Cumminses and staff that make the world a better place to be! Keep smiling! Lori BennettRifle
