The Back-to-School Health Fair, which is held every summer and coordinated by Voluntary Action Center, Family Impact Center, and Family Health Center, helps local K-12 students prepare for the start of the new school year. Students at the fair will receive free vision, hearing, and dental screenings. They will also receive free school supplies, backpacks, and haircuts. The supplies provided, which are for local children from low-income families, include items such as notebooks, crayons, scissors, and pencils. Different sets of supplies are available for elementary, middle, and high school.

2017’s Back-to-School Health Fair was a great success! With donations from many sources, over 700 children received much need supplies and health screenings and we anticipate at least that many again this year. If you or your business would like to donate supplies or funds to purchase supplies please call the Programs Coorndinator, Ashley Jarrett, at 573-874-2273.
