Limited resources, including access to quality healthcare, are some of the challenges facing many during the economic downturn. To provide these vital services to the community and our neighbors, through health screenings, services and education, Reach Out announces the date for The 8th Annual West End Community Health & Wellness Fair.

Join Reach Out, Our Lady of Guadalupe Church October 13, 2013 for the 8th Annual West End Community Health & Wellness Fair, Sunday, October 13, 2013 from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church located at 710 S. Sultana Ave., Ontario. This is a free event.

Open to all community members, the Health & Wellness Fair offers food and services for FREE: flu shots, fingerprinting for children, haircuts for children, immunizations for children, health screenings for the whole family, as well as assistance in finding a low-cost health insurance.
