Georgetown-Chunchula United Methodist Church is sponsoring a Community Health Fair, free and open to the public, on Saturday, April 25, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. The church is at 9775 Georgetown-Chunchula Road. Included will be health screenings, such as those for hearing, vision, blood pressure, blood glucose and bone density.
Various community agencies and businesses will also be on hand to share information on health topics, food programs, senior resources, first aid, addiction recovery, safety and more. There will be a free Kids' Zone packed with activities and fun; there'll be food and free door prize drawings.
LifeSouth bloodmobile will be on site so that attendees can donate blood. And Georgetown-Chunchula UMC is conducting a campaign to collect 25,000 pairs of used shoes, which will benefit church programs through compensation per pound but will also make a world-wide humanitarian impact when distributed in developing countries.
Those attending the Health Fair will receive two extra door prize tickets for giving blood and one extra for each pair of donated shoes up to ten tickets.
For more information or to pre-register for the blood drive, call Diane Baldwin, 251-243-2649.
