National Go Red Day     

National Wear Red Day - Friday, February 7 - is our special day to bring attention to this silent killer of women. We encourage everyone to wear red, raise their voices, know their cardiovascular risk and take action to live longer, healthier lives.


Help us save more lives. Get involved. Make a difference. Go Red and Speak Red, by telling other women that heart disease is their No. 1 killer.



National  Children's Dental Health Month

February is National Children's Dental Health Month sponsored by the American Dental Association to increase awareness about the importance of oral health.


Children should visit the Dentist by the time of their 1st birthday or 1st tooth. Children should learn to brush for 2 minutes 2 times a day.


The Tooth Taxi does both things at schools across Oregon; provide and teach kids how to use their personal oral hygiene kit, and provide free dental care. The wheels on the Tooth Taxi keep running by donations to The Dental Foundation of Oregon.


Support the Tooth Taxi by shopping at Fred Meyer during Children's Dental Health Month and every month! Now you can link your Fred Meyer Rewards Card to the Dental Foundation of Oregon and every time you shop you will be helping Oregon kids. It's easy! And costs nothing - you still earn all your Rewards Points, Fuel Points and Rebates.


Go to www.fredmeyer.com/communityrewards and search for The Dental Foundation of Oregon or our special Fred Meyer non-profit #81176, and with just a couple of clicks you'll be helping to earn dollars to help improve the oral health of Oregon children. If you don't have a Rewards Card, they are available at the Customer Service desk of any Fred Meyer store.
