On Saturday, August 6, 2016, CommunityGrows staff Jay Jordan and BEET Ivan Galdamez manned a table for the Ella Hill Hutch Health Faire and Backpack Giveaway. Hundreds of families lined up to come into the gymnasium and learn about resources for health. After visiting numerous tables and receiving stickers, they were eligible to receive new backpacks for the start of school. Mo’Magic helped to organized the event and many groups participated including Kaiser Permanente (one of our strong grant partners), University of the Pacific Dental Clinic, the YMCA, and Rainbow Grocery. It was great to share the space with so many wonderful partners. CommunityGrows was happy to get some recruits for the fall BEETS Cohort which begins in September. Applications are on-line here.
