With donations from colleagues, preschools, supermarkets, specialty shops and her dental supply company, Dr. Fern Cytryn sent care packages of goodies, dental supplies and cards to troops overseas. The New City pediatric dentist wanted to service men and women to know how much they are appreciated and selected "Holidays for the Troops" as her 2013 Fall/Winter charity. 

“I believe that you should always remember those who give so much on a daily basis,” said, Dr. Cytryn. “We wouldn’t be able to live our lives every day without the sacrifices our military men and women have made to protect us.” 

She said her business is all about creating smiles and she wanted to do something to put a smile on the faces of members of the military.

“The support has been tremendous,” said Dr. Cytryn, also called Dr. Fern by her patients.  “In addition, to the multitude of special goodies and dental necessities, we received cards, notes, and pictures to be sent overseas to our troops.” 

Contributions came from Kastin and Newman Orthodontics of Pomona; Ramapo Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery of Suffern; The Goddard School of Suffern; Kindercare of Suffern; Little People Palace of Congers; Henry Schein Dental; Dexis Dental; Costco of Nanuet; Stop & Shop of New City and Starbucks of Nanuet. Mahwah Marine Moms and North Jersey Military Moms who assisted her with making sure the packages were sent properly.

In thanking all the donors, Dr. Cytryn noted the artwork by young artist Michael “will surely put many smiles on the soldiers’ faces.”
