    From Ward 6 Councilman Steve K’s 4/2/18 newsletter:

    Ward 6 Resource Fair

    ” Mark your calendar for Saturday, April 21st. From noon until 4pm we’re hosting a resource fair in the Ward 6 community room. The goal is to introduce you to a variety of community organizations and utilities, each presenting products they offer on a limited income basis. The time you commit to this event may end up saving you a considerable amount of money.

    Right now we have these agencies committed to participate: Tucson Electric Power, Southwest Gas, Tucson Water, Tucson Parks & Recreation, Environmental Services, the YWCA, Pima Community College, El Rio Health Center, Sun Tran, The Bicycle and Pedestrian Program, TUGO the Tucson Bike Share Program, and the Pima Animal Care Center. That’s everything from your electric bill to your pet and how you get around town. Something for everyone.

    Some of the agencies will be signing up participants. For example, to sign up for reduced cost in the Parks programs they’ll want some income verification, household verification, your Arizona ID card and something like a utility bill to verify that you’re a Tucson resident. I suspect most of that is similar to what others will need if you’re in fact signing up for services or reduced cost programs such as $2 swim lessons now that the temps are heating up.

    I’ll share more about this in coming newsletters, but don’t miss the opportunity by forgetting to mark it on your calendar. Each group coming has a unique niche in the community, and most people are affected by the work they do. We’re looking forward to being the conduit between the agencies, and your family.”
