100 Lake County Residents Attend Congressman Garamendi’s Social Services and Wellness Fair
CLEARLAKE OAKS, CA - With almost two dozen non-profit and government agencies available to help, more than 100 Lake County residents stopped by Congressman John Garamendi’s (D-Fairfield, CA) Lake County Social Services and Wellness Fair to see what services may be available for them.
Vendors in attendance provided information and advice on health care, veterans services, senior services, help for lower income families, educational opportunities, job placement, and more.
“Part of my job is to let you strut your stuff, to let you share what services you are offering to this community,” Congressman Garamendi told the attendees. “Lake County has demonstrated that they can effectively work collaboratively to help. Lives are being made better, because these groups are going the extra mile to make a difference.”
During Congressman Garamendi’s remarks, every vendor was given an opportunity to give a short pitch on the services they provide to residents. Congressman Garamendi also fielded a few questions from the audience on issues ranging from the Trans Pacific Partnership to diabetes services in Medicare.
Vendors in attendance included Covered California, Lake County Veterans Services, Legal Services of Northern California, Social Security, Yuba College Clear Lake Campus, and North Coast Opportunities Head Start.
