Free resource fair being hosted in Elkhart
ELKHART, Ind. -- The Elkhart Education Foundation is hosting a resource fair at the Tolson Center to provide free necessities to residents on Saturday from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
Through a vast partnership, this fair will be providing free food, clothing, toiletries, organized resources, Flu shots, and COVID-19 vaccinations to up to 300 families, while supplies last.
This fair will also be offering free eye exams to any current Elkhart Community Schools' students.
Anyone who receives a COVID-19 vaccine at this fair will receive a $25 Aldi gift card.
Participants receiving their second COVID-19 shot will receive an additional $25 and be entered into a drawing to win one of two big screen televisions that will be awarded randomly.
"When non-profits work together to wrap our arms around a community in need, magic happens. This event will feed, clothe and protect our residents against preventable diseases. Plus, they will have the opportunity to learn about programming that can support their families through this tough time,” said Ashley Molyneaux, Elkhart Education Foundation Director.
