As many as 20 nonprofits will gather from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 31 in Boca Raton for a free expo to showcase free medical services, community services, health screenings and resources for public assistance.
Changing Lives of Boca Raton, a nonprofit homeless resource that provides food, shelter, social services and other necessities to those in need, will have its first Unity Day at Ebenezer Baptist Church, 200 NE 12th St.
Food, water, entertainment and socially distanced activities for the children will be available.
“We are so excited to present Unity Day and how it is being supported by so many local businesses and organizations that are eager to share information on accessing local resources to support family health and public assistance,” Jim Batmasian, founder of Changing Lives of Boca Raton, said in a statement.
According to the nonprofit, “the goal is to help disadvantaged and underprivileged families struggling during these trying times, the homeless, and those at risk of being homeless by providing and informing them of all the great resources each organization has to offer.”
Face masks are required for attendees and volunteers except while actively eating or drinking. All participants will be guided through each nonprofit’s booth to avoid large crowds, organizers said.
