we care fair

Following the success of the first event last April, the Commerce Community Action Program will be bringing back its “We Care Fair” that saw a positive reception the first go-around.

The We Care Fair, a C-CAP organized event, brings together different churches, non-profits and other organizations that provide resources and services to help seniors, families in need and others.

Rebounding off of the success of last year’s event, C-CAP is organizing another fair to give community members a chance to network and gain information about important resources in Commerce. Things from food pantries to help with Medicare are on tap.

Debbie Patterson from C-CAP says that not only is the We Care Fair a good way to learn about what is available in the community, it also provides a good outlet to discover volunteer opportunities in the area.

“The fair isn’t just about giving people the information they need to help,” Patterson said. “If you are a service-minded person, this is also a good way to get in touch with organizations seeking volunteers.”

The We Care Fair will be held on June 1 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the downtown green in Commerce. In addition to multiple booths set up, there will be a bounce house and face painting for kids as well as live music. A free hot dog lunch will be provided courtesy of the Bread of Life Church’s Community Services, and several downtown business will be handing out coupons. Each guest also gets a free entry into several raffles that will be held throughout the day.
