On March 10th, the St. Clair County Community Services Coordinating Body is sponsoring our 2nd annual “Community Resource Fair” from 10am-4pm at St. Clair County Community College. This event is geared toward the growing number of county residents who are homeless or at-risk of becominghomeless. Last year’s Community Resource Fair drew a much larger crowd than we expected. We had approximately 650 people attend, over 35 vendors providing services, and more than 150 volunteers. We outgrew our facility before the doors even opened!
This year, with unemployment at an all-time high in our community, we are planning for a minimum of 1,500 attendees. We will be distributing personal hygiene kits, spring and summer clothing, and business attire. In addition, the Resource Fair will provide an array of community services, including on-site medication reviews, breast exams, mental health assessments, blood pressure checks, eyeglass repairs, haircuts, and more.
Please help us spread the word about this valuable community event. We could use your help with collecting personal hygiene items for the hygiene kits that will be distributed at this event. We are in need of 1,500 kits for men/women, and 500 for children. The following items will be included in the kits: Toothbrushes for adults and children Toothpaste for adults and children Bath toys for children Bubble bath for children Shampoo and conditioner for both adults and children disposable razors shaving cream full size bars of soap dental floss Deodorant. Items may be dropped off by Feb 13 at my office in Marine City:
