Every firework sold at the big tents at Cub Foods and the Hermantown Walmart through July 5 will help fund medical missions to Liberia in February. A team with the Duluth Gospel Tabernacle Church brings vision, dental, and medical care to the country; however, they're looking for more dentists to join the trip as those are the longest procedures.

"There's lines and lines of people, and they walk for days and wait for hours to have their mouth relieved and not be in pain anymore," Team Member Ann Fure said. "I mean, it's amazing."

She said everyone is welcome to join the trip. If you would like to get involved, you can check out the medical missions website.
