On Saturday, December 3rd, 2022, ACCEPT had the pleasure of hosting the “Holly Jolly Health Party” at the Boys and Girls Club of Truckee Meadows located at 2680 E. 9th Street. Joined by community companies and vendors, we had many great experiences during the day! Molina Healthcare of Nevada helped us feed 130 people with Jimmy John’s sandwich boxes, Liberty Dental gave free kids’ dental screenings, Black Wallstreet had many amazing items to give away, and Community Health Alliance and Immunize Nevada vaccinated the public. They were able to help 104 people become vaccinated at the event with 40 people receiving COVID boosters and 64 receiving the Flu vaccine!
ACCEPT partnered with vendors to give over 35 raffle prizes away, kids jumped through the day in the bounce house, Dr. Bayo-Curry-Winchell held an “Ask the Doctor’ medical session, and DJ “Duse Beatz,’ had us all dancing the day away as attendees learned about the invaluable resources in our Washoe County community. Attendees were able to visit more than 25 vendors as they played our “ACCEPT: Passport to Community Resources’ game.
