Huge “Community Resource Fair” Coming


                                         To Yuba City May 18th

The 9th Annual “Community Resource Fair” is set for Saturday, May 18 from 10:00 until 1:00 at Gauche Aquatic Park at Wilbur Ave. and C St. 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 76 local non-profit and governmental 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 850 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” walk with about 550 participants and some 75 prizes in a free half-hourly drawing.

While the event caters mostly to low-income families, there are many exhibitors catering to all income levels.

The Community Resource Fair is sponsored in part by Sutter Health, the Sutter County Children and Families Commission, Nivano Physicians, Ridgeline Specialized Pediatric Day Health & Respite Services, Allstate-True Blue Insurance and Anthem BlueCross.
