A small group of concerned citizens have formed a small group to provide a Resource Fair for the local community to serve those in need (homeless, indigent, low income). We are hopeful that this might become an annual event, and will grow to include more participating agencies. However, we are off to a great start with about a dozen groups participating so far.
The event will be held at Zion UCC on Tuesday, September 26, 2023 from 12 noon to 4 pm. Some of the groups present will include CASA, Community Action Council, Children In Need, Medication First, and Change Health System, to name just a few. There will be resource information available as well, such as lists of clothing and food banks.
We would like to supply small tote bags to each person who attends as well as bottled water. There is no public funding available, so we are looking for donations from groups and/or individuals who might be able to contribute even a small amount to help purchase these items. Would it be possible for HARC to spread the word of our need? In addition, if anyone would like to volunteer on the day of the event (welcome attendees, hand out bags and bottled water, direct people to the various tables), we would welcome the help.
Checks can be made out to Zion Church and mailed to the church at 201 N. Potomac St Hagerstown, MD 21740. Anyone wishing to volunteer can contact me directly at my email@example.com or by phone at 301-667-8685.
