The purpose of this event is to link available resources to those in need in the Rockford community. Congregations, businesses, community agencies and volunteers will be working together to reach out to the Rockford community. Residents will have the opportunity to be linked with counseling and housing services. Medical volunteers will be present to provide blood pressure checks, as well as hearing and vision tests. Residents may choose to have a haircut or receive a manicure, while the young may opt for face painting or to engage in other children’s activities. Hungry stomachs will be met with a free lunch, and a box of food will be available to take home. Residents will be able to ‘shop’ in the clothing room and bookstore for themselves and their family. Bicycles will be repaired and live music will engage the crowds. Also, for those seeking spiritual renewal will have an opportunity to receive prayers and blessings. We anticipate smiles to be everywhere – and all of this will be free to the residents
