“As we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, we felt it was more important now than ever to promote healthy behaviors and offer an opportunity for our community to learn about local resources,” said Angela Stoltzenburg, ALMH community health collaborative director. “We are so thankful to the Oasis for allowing us to use their property. We think the Oasis parking lot will provide an ideal space to keep the line moving and provide a nice experience for participants and vendors.”
Over 25 vendors are scheduled to provide free resources, referrals and services from their vehicle. Participants can expect to receive free masks, hand sanitizer and more while supplies last.
