Equality Health Foundation Hosts Healthy Fall Festival & Turkey Giveaway
Equality Health Foundation is pleased to present its 6th Annual Healthy Fall Festival and 1,000 Turkey Giveaway happening Saturday, November 19, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Maxine O. Bush Elementary School in Phoenix, Ariz.
The Healthy Fall Festival is a community celebration designed to kick off the holiday season with an abundance of gratitude and thanksgiving. Included will be free COVID-19 testing, vaccines and flu shots, health education sessions, mammograms and breast health screenings, diabetes testing, and community resources and information. There will also be a Healthy Bag Giveaway, raffles and a variety of fresh fruit and produce with a frozen turkey (while supplies last), among other nutritious essentials, for each family.
“Locking arms to serve neighborhoods significantly impacted by the pandemic in the Roosevelt School District is more crucial than ever,” said Tomás León, Equality Health Foundation president. “Our goal is to reach even more families recovering from the pandemic this year and contribute to building healthy and thriving communities.”
Equality Health Foundation is a nonprofit organization that aims to level the healthcare playing field in culturally diverse and underserved communities. The goal is to expand access to care, accelerate health education, and eliminate healthcare inequalities so that everyone has an opportunity to lead healthier and longer lives.
This event attracts thousands from the greater South Phoenix community. The organization welcomes the participation of sponsors at partnership levels including Health Champion ($5,000), Health Advocate ($2,500), and Health Supporter ($1,500). Registration for exhibitor space is available for nonprofit, community-based organizations at no cost.
