More than 700 City residents attended previous event last month
Wilmington – More than two dozen government agencies, service providers, and civic organizations will come together tomorrow from 1-4 p.m. at a Wilmington Community Resource Fair sponsored by the Attorney General’s office in conjunction with Wilmington Mayor Dennis P. Williams. Tomorrow’s event, to take place in the City’s Prices Run Park, is the second of three resource fairs planned in the City this year; the first took place August 2nd in at Kosciuszko Park, and a third is set for next Saturday, September 20 in Christina Park.
“Our Community Resource Fair at Prices Run Park is part of an expanding effort to reduce street crime and strengthen communities by engaging with neighborhood residents, providing safe and fun activities for families, and building strong relationships with the communities we serve,” Attorney General Beau Biden said today. “More than 700 residents attended our first community resource fair last month at Kosciuszko Park, and we’re bringing even more resources together on the east side tomorrow. I urge residents to attend this free event, learn of the many services available to them, and help us send a clear message that we’re committed to working together to make our streets safer.”
Tomorrow’s event features family-friendly activities, including a moon bounce and free food provided by Rita’s Water Ice and Grotto’s Pizza. In addition, residents will have an opportunity to connect on-site with staff from government agencies and other organizations to discuss resources they can utilize to improve their communities. Informational tables will be staffed on-site to connect attendees to a wide range of state resources available through a number of organizations, including:
The Community Resource Fairs are spearheaded by Biden’s Crime Strategies Unit, which he created earlier this year to combat crime on the local level. Read the original press release announcing the Wilmington Resource Fairs.
