Public health fair gives back to community

Posted:

LEPANTO, AR (KAIT)- Employees with the East Arkansas Family Health Center held a Health Fair for the public.

The parking lot at the site in Lepanto was filled with community residents. Seven vendors were set up providing people with information, not to mention the free back packs handed out to kids for school.

Helen McGee, with the East Arkansas Family Health Center, said, "To help our community, to help underprivileged patients and give back to them for their children. We try to do back packs. If we don't have backpacks, we try to give them something back to show our appreciation to them for what they do for us during the year."

They've been holding the event for about 15 years.
