The All Peoples 22nd Annual Health, Resource and Book Fair was held on Saturday, June 1, 2019. Community members were able to receive free vision exams, mammograms, oral health presentations, glucose and blood pressure screenings, free reading glasses to children under 18 with vision deficiencies, pedestrian and bicycle safety presentations, dental screenings and Scholastic 2 for 1 books.
The LA Host Lions conducted the vision screening at All Peoples from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm. They screened a total of 105 people of which there were 69 adults and 36 children. Of those screened 32 adults received reading eyeglasses, 35 passed and 38, mostly children, were referred for further evaluation under our Lark Ellen grant to the Southern California College of Optometry. All Peoples would like to thank the LA Host Lions for conducting the vision screening during the fair.
All Peoples would also like to thank our Sponsors who helped to make the event possible: Simply Ink, 2120 Kuts, Marquez Meats, El Panon Bakery, Lucia’s Discount Store, Guadalupana Bakery, GS Mart, M.E.J.O.R. Group, World Harvest Food Bank, Clemente Gutierrez, and Ricardo Macias. We appreciate your support, and on behalf of our staff and event attendees, thank you for helping to empower our community.
