On Saturday, October 29, 2011, Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston hosted a Fall Harvest Health and Food fair at its Mamie George Community Center in Fort Bend County. The event was complimentary and open to the entire community.
The family-friendly event offered guests the opportunity to learn more about the Center’s programs in a fun and informal setting. Information booths for each program area were set up inside of the Center. Some of the services offered to guests included complimentary blood pressure testing and chair massages. Outdoor activities included free grilled hotdogs and refreshments, face painting, door prizes, and much more. The Center’s Patty’s Café was open for people who preferred to enjoy a seated lunch.
Located at 1111 Collins Road, the 26,000-square-foot community center is a hub for Catholic Charities services in Fort Bend County. The Center provides much needed services, with an emphasis on low income residents and seniors.
Funding and volunteer commitments from the community are vital to sustaining programs that will help people facing numerous challenges move towards self-sufficiency.
