CONNECTING OUR RESIDENTS
With increasing costs of food, fuel and other necessities, do you find yourself struggling but don't know where to start? Help is out there.
Join local agencies and businesses as they come together to support residents through uncertain times at the Community Roots Resource Fair. The Fair will be held at the Motherlode Fairgrounds on August 17 from 3pm-7pm. This free event will include a tri-tip sandwich and a bag of groceries (while supplies last), entertainment, demonstrations, and information on local resources.
"We want to reach those who are struggling, but may not know what services are available or how to connect with them." says Rebecca Espino, Tuolumne County's Health and Human Services Director. "I have learned through the event planning process about so many local services, including help with paying water bills that ATCAA now offers within it's Energy Program." Learn about dozens of services offered, what you may qualify for and how to apply by calling the hotline or attending the event. Many organizations will have staff on hand to answer questions, provide information, applications and assistance.
Hosted by the Tuolumne County Department of Health and Human Services and supported by the Sonora Area Foundation the Fair will include over 40 different agencies and businesses offering information and help navigating what is available to them.
