Smile Power vehicle rolls into town

Charlette Shoecraft was honored during the April 25 stop in the South Seattle/Renton area.

On April 25 the Delta Dental of Washington’s Smile Power visited Empowering Youth & Families Outreach.

During the Smile Power tour, community members and local organizations were honored for giving back through volunteering and other good deeds, according to a media release.

The release added that Charlette Shoecraft was honored during the April 25 stop in the South Seattle/Renton area. She was nominated by her sister-in-law Rhonda.

Shoecraft founded the Empowering Youth & Families Outreach that helps support kids before and after school. The program looks to expose students to opportunities they may not get otherwise, the release stated.

Those opportunities include visiting college campuses, a trip on an airplane to a new city and bringing in professionals to speak about different career paths.

During the Smile Power tour Shoecraft was surprised with donations for all of the children in her program as well as a trip for her and her husband.
