AJFC hosting resource fair Wednesday

AJFC Head Start Program will have its annual Community Resource Fair Wednesday at the Natchez Convention Center from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

AJFC Head Start promotes the importance of community resources to support families and children in Southwest Mississippi.

This fair will bring attention to an enormous amount of resources that are available to the community that are normally taken for granted. The role of Community Action and Head Start will also be highlighted during this event.

There will be a broad number of organizations, programs and groups represented. AJFC Head Start is asking the public to come and learn about the various programs and activities that support the community.

Community Action has a positive effect on the entire community. As we help more people reach self-sufficiency, they fuel the economy.

A robust economy is a catalyst for improved communities. Stronger communities make America a better place to live.

Very few people are unaffected by Community Action.

We give a voice to the poor, improve communities, help people and change lives.

Everyone reaps the benefits from those efforts.

For more information please contact me at 601-445-8878.

Royal Hill is AFJC Head Start’s family and community partnership manager.
