Health and Resource Fair

Our Fair was a great success! We were able to reach out to many community members and provide services and education for free, thanks to the generosity of our donors. Here is a glance at what we were able to accomplish:

Over 500 individuals and families attended the event. There were over 40 organizations present to provide information on a number of topics including the following:

  • Nutrition
  • Cooking
  • Social services
  • Safety
  • Oral health and hygiene
  • Diet and exercise
  • Accessing health care coverage and more

A number of screenings were also provided free of charge including:

  • Health screenings
  • Blood sugar/glucose tests
  • Blood pressure
  • Dental screenings
  • Vision screenings and more

Now, we are nearly 6 months past this event and have completed our funding efforts. We are incredibly proud of what we were able to do this year and are looking ahead to our future events.

Currently, we are focusing on providing a very specific, but often ignored issue: Children's Dental. Please find our new project which has just been posted that is aimed at combating oral health issues and wellness for our children.

Did you know that tooth decay is the most common childhood disease in the United States and affecting five times more kids than asthma? Visit our project (#7005) to learn more!
