Healthy Living Fair

The Annual Healthy Living Fair

Congregation Shir Hadash, in conjunction with many other community service, health care, and religious organizations, produces the annual Healthy Living Fair. The fair provides services to underserved and/or uninsured families. Services include medical and dental screening, care, and care referrals.
Only a participant can capture the essence of this wonderfully diverse and worthy endeavor. The entire success of this program depends upon the generous volunteer support of our members, with over 200 individuals each year.

The primary purpose and overriding goal of the Healthy Living Health Fair 2019, as with our past thirteen health fairs, was to provide needed healthcare services and educational information to a large population of low-income, multi-ethnic, medically underserved people.  We focus on bringing much needed dental and vision services directly to the site through our generous providers in addition to emphasizing prevention through screening, education, enhanced awareness, early detection, and health promotion. In 2019, we provided these services at St. Mary Parish in Gilroy. Please return to this webpage for information regarding the 2020 Healthy Living Fair location and preparations.

Partner organizations donating volunteers and/or expertise to this past event included St. Mary Parish, Congregation Emeth, Tzu Chi Buddhist Foundation, the Lions Club, the Vision Service Plan, OnSite Dental, Santa Clara County Dental Society, and Santa Clara County Optometric Society.

We are grateful to Tabard Theater, Kaiser Medical Foundation, Anthem Foundation, Gilroy Rotary Club, Health Trust, UFCW Local 5, as well as Congregation Shir Hadash donors for their generous contributions to our 2019 event.
