Akron, OH (PRWEB) May 26, 2016
Mature Services, Inc. will host their first Annual Health and Services Fair on June 7, 2012 from 10 am to 2 pm. The event takes place at Mature Services offices located at 415 S. Portage Path in Akron, Ohio.
Attend for an afternoon designed to learn about programs offered by Mature Services and other community service agencies. Meet with representatives from Axess Pointe Community Health Center, Akron Canton Regional Food Bank, Ohio Means Jobs, The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, and the Social Security Administration. Be sure to prepare questions and come to the fair!
According to Karen Hrdlicka, CEO and President of Mature Services, “We have been administering the Farmers’ Market program for Direction Home for a few years, however the vouchers are limited. A federal and locally funded program allows for the distribution of food vouchers to low income seniors to provide them with access to locally grown produce. We wanted a way to give back to our older adults as a whole whether or not they received vouchers, so we are mixing our distribution with a health and services fair. Mature Services provides services and collaborates with many other agencies to support older adults in our community. This event is a celebration of the success of that collaboration.”
During the event, the Akron Canton Regional Food Bank will be giving out fresh produce and shelf-stable foods to health fair attendees. Please bring a shopping bag.
Mark the calendar for the health fair, and plan to learn more about Mature Services and the solutions they provide to help older adults and their caregivers remain active, healthy, and independent so they can continue to age with dignity. For more information, contact Valerie Henderson, Community Outreach Representative at Mature Services, at 330-253-4597, ext. 169.
