On June 15th, there will be a Marquette County Resource Fair with 40+ local organizations/businesses, a Feeding America Food Truck, free haircuts, and giveaways of outdoor and athletic equipment.

The organizers, Upper Peninsula Health Plan and Upper Peninsula Health Care Solutions, would like to give away new sporting goods like balls, bike helmets, jump ropes, baseball bats and gloves, etc. to local families.  Their goal is to provide gear to help encourage kids and families to be active.  

We are asking for donations of brand-new sporting equipment to help gather these supplies.  Items may be dropped off at the Diocese Office.  If a congregation is willing, we will bring you a box to gather supplies, and we will come over to your church to gather the supplies.  

 

Monetary donations are also welcome as the event organizers will go shopping for gear to hand out.  These donations allow them to purchase items that they believe will be in higher demand.  

 

Finally, if anyone wants to have a table at the event to help promote some community resources, they are still taking those reservations.  Let your community folks know to take advantage of the event.
