The theater company allows young people to express themselves through dance, spoken word and other performance arts.

This was Colgate-Palmolive’s first year participating in the Harlem Week festivities as part of its commitment to enhance communities. During the Children’s Festival, Colgate-Palmolive had an exhibit in which families participated in fun-filled games promoting lifelong oral health and received gift bags complete with toothpaste and mouthwash. Additionally, the Colgate Bright Smiles, Bright Futures van was on-site, offering free dental screenings to children.
