Last Saturday, Senator John Mulroe hosted his third annual Community Resource Fair. The event was held in Dunham Park on the northwest side of Chicago and brought many local, county and state agencies together to provide information, resources and services to fairgoers.
The Secretary of State was able to renew or correct driver’s licenses and State ID cards on-site, as well as renew license plate stickers and provide organ donor registration. The Department of Employment Security provided assistance with preparing resumes and resources for job seekers.
In addition to the numerous agencies services provided at the fair, a Health Tent also provided free flu shots, osteoporosis screenings, stroke risk assessments, hearing and blood pressure screenings, medication information and more.
The air was filled with music as children played bingo, participated in face painting and crafts and enjoyed a bounce house and other games.
“This is the third year we have hosted this event and it is always a great success,” Senator Mulroe said. “It is a chance for members of the community to learn about valuable state services and receive health and education information all in one location.”
