CARE Fair Postponed
As our entire globe, country, state, and individual communities have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made decisions about our projects to be in accord with government and health official directives to “flatten the curve.” Therefore, we are postponing July’s CARE Fair until the Fall of 2020. We are also canceling the May 2020 Dental Fair. We did not make this decision lightly and are working hard on rescheduling CARE Fair for when we are able to hold the event later this year. We will provide this information once a date and location have been confirmed.
By postponing we now have the opportunity to donate our current supply of CARE Fair medical personal protective equipment (PPE) to the front-line health care providers as they treat ill patients battling COVID-19 here in Utah.
Although CARE Fair 2020 is delayed, its importance and necessity cannot be emphasized enough. With anticipated growing levels of unemployed and uninsured Utah residents, we believe we will reach a much larger population in the fall.
About CARE Fair
The Junior League Community Assistance and Resource Event (CARE) Fair is an annual, two-day event organized and directed by the Junior League of Salt Lake City for families needing routine medical, dental, and vision services along with community assistance information. Typically, major barriers (i.e., time, language, financial, and transportation constraints) prevent some Utah families from receiving many basic health and human services. The Junior League CARE Fair eliminates many of these barriers by bringing together community agencies and medical service providers at one time and in one place. These medical services are provided free of charge at the Junior League CARE Fair!
CARE Fair is committed to help those who need it most. There are translators for several different languages to assist the immigrant and refugee population, who often don’t have access to health care. In addition to FREE health and dental services we give away bike helmets and car seats on a first come, first served basis.
Thank you so very much to our amazing volunteers! Care Fair wouldn’t be the success it is without you!
