Making A Difference
The Benco Family Foundation is making a difference, smile after smile. We are dedicated to improving the dental health and quality of life in our local communities, and around the world.
Home base is Northeastern Pennsylvania. This is where the Benco Family Foundation began its efforts to improve and grow our community through the vision of Sally and Larry Cohen in 2005. And here’s how we’re continuing to do it…..
