In the spirit of promoting a healthy and safe summer, WomenShelter of Long Beach (WSLB) hosted its fourth annual Family Fun Day A Community Health and Outreach Event at The Salvation Army – 3000 Long Beach Blvd., Long Beach, CA 90807 on Saturday, June 23, 2018 from 10:30am-1:30pm. This free event was open to the entire community, offering free admission and parking.
The purpose of this event was to connect community members to local family and health service providers in hopes of providing them with the knowledge and resources necessary to keep themselves and their families safe from harm. Participating service providers included: For The Child, The Children’s Clinic, St. Mary Medical Center, The Guidance Center, Disabled Resources Center, and many more! Guests received information regarding physical and mental health and health assessments, including blood and cholesterol tests. In addition, guests were invited to participate in interactive activities like yoga workshops for beginners, arts & crafts, and fire safety stop, drop, and roll drills.
The fun didn’t stop there! Every guest had the opportunity to enjoy a free hotdog and refreshments and earn raffle tickets for free giveaways by visiting tables and playing a carnival game at the WSLB Fun Zone. The first 50 guests to complete the WSLB Family Fun Day tour received a brand new backpack! The event had something for the entire family! WSLB had a blast and can’t wait to kick off the summer with you again next year!
