The Wellness Fair will also include information on infant and child safety, women’s health, oral care and overall nutritional care. Information on securing basic needs, medical care, legal aid and parenting support will be available. The event will also feature reading to therapy dogs, children’s games, giveaways, and free food and drinks.
