Community Support Fall Resource Fair

Durango High School is sponsoring a Fall Resource Fair for Durango 9-R families on December 14, 2019 from 11am-2pm in Durango High School's Cafeteria and Commons. The purpose of this fair is to connect families struggling socio/economically to meet needs at a one-stop-shop location. There will be a light lunch served and agencies such as: Manna, Good Food Collective, Pediatric Partners, Durango Adult Education, Housing Solutions, San Juan Public Health, Pro-bono legal services, Los Companeros, and others will be present with information to assist families. If available to the family, please bring identifying documents such as: driver's license, birth certificate, social security card, mail identifying home address, so that the agency can sign the family up for resources on the spot. There will also be hygiene kits, food bags, and winter wear available. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact: Katie Brandau: kbrandau@durangoschools.org 259-1630 X2316, or Sean Hembree: shembree@durangoschools.org 259-1630 X2267, or your school personnel who reached out to you
