Livermore Connects Salud Y Sol! A Resounding Success!

Saturday, August 12th, 2023, marked Livermore Connects inaugural public outreach event. Our aim was clear: to foster connections and create a referral system, making resources accessible for those who need them. With a turnout of over 700 community members, the park was alive with activity, highlighting Livermore’s strong sense of community and shared purpose.

Here’s a snapshot of the day:

  • Tri-Valley Haven: Distributed backpacks for our youth.
  • Open Heart Kitchen: Kept our spirits high with their delicious food.
  • Axis Community Health: our FQHC (Federal Qualified Health Center) Partner promoted health & behavioral health services, insurance enrollment as well as dental hygiene with their dental kit giveaways.
  • City Serve: Provided care sessions, balance tests and games for kid
  • Quest Science Center: Hosted a rocket activity
  • La Familia: Provided vaccinations and health screenings
  • Tri-Valley Air Quality Alliance: Assembled and handed out fans for better air quality in the homes of people who have asthma or other breathing issues
  • TVNPA: Coordinated, promoted the event and registered attendees as well as provided music, food, games, face painting, and entertainment
