With almost two weeks after tour 6th Hoover Street Health fair, it is a great time to look back and reflect on all of the good that was “under the sea” that day! With most e-board members heading to the venue at 6:30am (while some were there at 5:45am!), we knew it would be a long day, but we were all excited to help and knew we did not have too much time to waste. With setting up going as smoothly as it could have, the fair started at 9am with dozens of families entering the gates excited to go to the health booths. Booths included our own CHIP free health screenings, Visions for Vision, CHLA, CPR, our co-organizer, YMCA, and many more. As the parents zoomed by the booths, kids also had the option to have a great time getting their face painted, looking for hidden treasures, fishing, making jellyfish out of plates, and ring tossing on some paper algae!
There are too many people to thank for the success that this health fair was! From the CHIP volunteers, to the YMCA organizers, APO volunteers, and many many others, thank you for making this a great day! It is always clear that the attendees clearly take something out of it as they do not have access to many healthcare needs, and it is great to see that we can have an impact in their lives!
