Space is available for Greater Lawrence non-profits to join the GLCAC’s 5th Annual Community Resource Fair on August 16 at Campagnone Park in Lawrence. The fair connects Lawrence families and residents to the variety of services available to help them overcome challenges and achieve success.
The Community Resource Fair, from 1 to 4 p.m., will feature non-profit organizations and local businesses providing help with education, financial services, health, housing, social services, job training and youth activities. Residents who visit the organizations at the fair and complete a checklist will be entered to win a backpack with school supplies.
“GLCAC is pleased to again offer this opportunity for our fellow service organizations to join together and reach out to people who need our help. The Resource Fair is a fun and educational event that is a new tradition in our community, and we are grateful for the continued support of the city, area non-profits and our friends and neighbors,” said Evelyn Friedman, Executive Director of the GLCAC.
Non-profit organizations and Lawrence businesses interested in reserving space at the fair can contact the GLCAC by calling (978) 681-4920 to obtain a registration form and information. Organizations should provide their own table or rent one from GLCAC for a $10 fee. In addition, they are asked to provide at least two backpacks with school supplies to be given as raffle prizes to fair visitors.
GLCAC is a social services agency that annually assists 29,000 individuals in Greater Lawrence. GLCAC’s wide range of services, from heating assistance to daycare, focus on lifting families out of poverty and setting them on a pathway to economic stability.
