Our Office Cares!
Palmer Home for Children
We partner with the Palmer Home for Children organization every year. The mission of the Palmer Home is to provide residential care for children and introduce the love of God through service. The residential care of Palmer Home is provided without charge for children who are in need, regardless of race or creed.
Palmer Home for Children currently houses nearly 100 children ranging from birth through college age. These children live year-round on campuses in Columbus, MS or one near Hernando, MS.
Each year we host our Smiles for Kids Fundraiser to help the Palmer Home. Throughout March, April, May, and June, we donate all proceeds of our teeth whitening treatments directly to the Palmer Home. Our patients are able to help children in need while whitening and brightening their smiles at the same time!
In the last decade, we have raised over $40,000 for the Palmer Home.
Support For Education
We actively support educational opportunities in our community. Over the last several years, Hernando Elementary has been our adopted school. We donate funds each year to assist in purchasing computers, reading programs, and a variety of other projects.
We also sponsor a $1,000 scholarship every year at Hernando High School. This Tiger STRIPE Scholarship is given to a senior with financial need. Dr. Seymour created this scholarship for a student who has overcome obstacles and succeeded in earning a diploma. The scholarship is designed to offset costs during the student’s freshman year of college.
We also enjoy sponsoring the Hernando Hills PTA end-of-year teacher appreciation luncheon, and contributing to the golf tournament that assists the 2+2 Scholarship. This scholarship is awarded to students who graduate from Northwest Community College and are going to attend the University of Mississippi.
Lastly, we support the Desoto Economic Council’s Foundation for Excellence Campaign. This program supports teachers in Desoto County by awarding grants.
Other organizations that we partner with include the Community Foundation of Northwest Mississippi, the Krewe of Hernando, and the Junior Auxiliary of Desoto County. We sponsor events like The Crystal Ball, the Mardi Gras Ball, and the Crown Benefit to support the above-mentioned organizations.
Parks and Recreation
Another area that we are passionate about is the Hernando Parks and Recreation. We believe that parks and recreation are an important and central part of the community, and we want to improve our current parks.
In the past few years, we have donated money to help irrigate soccer fields at the new Soccer Park. We are excited to have helped build this new park and hope both children and adults can enjoy the recreation provided in the park for years to come.
Each year at Christmas, we like to adopt several families in Hernando to help bring them a more joyous Christmas. Our office staff purchases clothes and toys for the children. We love playing the part of Santa’s elves for children in need.
