Yuba City, Ca.
The “8th Annual Community Resource Fair” is set for Saturday, May 19 from 10:00 until 1:00 at Gauche Aquatic Park in Yuba City.
The event has increased in size each year, with this year being no exception.
Sponsored by the Yuba-Sutter-Colusa United Way, the “Community Resource Fair” features some 65 local non-profit and government agencies sporting loads of information about their low-cost and no-cost services and programs for individuals and families.
“I am amazed at how many services are available locally that many people didn’t know existed,” said Bob Harlan, Executive Director of Yuba-Sutter-Colusa United Way.
“It’s a one-stop shop for dozens of types of human services. There literally is something for everyone,” Harlan said.
In addition to the information tables, the first 750 people will receive a free barbeque lunch. Plus, there is a kid’s fun run, children’s activities, a “Walk and Roll for Disability Awareness” event with about 450 participants and some 65 prizes in a free drawings.
While the event caters mostly to low-income families, there are many exhibitors catering to all income levels.

The event is sponsored in part by Sutter Health and the Sutter County Children and Families Commission.
