For the past 14 years, two orthodontists practicing in South Russell – and their patients – have been taking it upon themselves to give area families in need a joyous holiday.

Dr. Sharon Schmahl and Dr. Katharine Powers craft smiles for folks of all ages at Leap Orthodontics on Bell Road. Around the holidays, they put a Thanksgiving basket with a list of needed provisions and a Christmas tree with “ornaments” listing family needs in their office to help gather holiday items for a needy local family.
