Mount Calvary Community Outreach Fall Festival

BRIC's Year Two Celebration Fall Festival

Fall Festival 03

As the season set on year two of the Building Resilient and Inclusive Communities (BRIC) grant, the partner organizations took some to time to celebrate with a Fall Festival for local residents.  The October 2022 event was hosted by the MTC Community Outreach organization in Washington Park and featured a neighborhood safety walk-audit, health and wellness screenings, COVID vaccinations, and a variety of family-friendly games and events. 

The event also gave HEALTHIER TOGETHER's partners such as the Make Health Happen initative, Age Smart Community Resources, the Neighbor-to-Neighbor network, the East Side Health District, SIHF Healthcare, the HeartLands Conservancy, the YMCA and others an opportunity to highlight their collaborative work to improve food security, enhance social connections and create opportunities for active living in those communities most impacted by the COVID Pandemic over the last two years.
