Gulf Coast Blood Center: a chance for the community to give back and donate blood.
Our health fair also includes: Back to school supplies and back packs for all the children present at the event. Lunch for children under 18 years of age provided by Houston Parks and Recreation. Houston Food Bank will host a Community Food giveaway. WIC Program will help scheduling appointments. And Harris County Lead Program will have Free Lead inspections of homes.
