There will also be a Healthy Bag Giveaway, raffles and a variety of fresh fruit and produce with a frozen turkey (while supplies last), among other nutritious essentials, for each family.
“Providing individuals with resources to promote optimal health and well-being in Arizona, Texas and Tennessee is our objective,” said Tomás León, Equality Health Foundation president. “We aim to collaborate with local public-private partners to reach more families this year to help support healthy and thriving communities.”
Equality Health Foundation is a nonprofit organization that aims to level the healthcare playing field in culturally diverse and underserved communities. The goal is to expand access to care, accelerate health education, and eliminate healthcare inequalities so that everyone has an opportunity to lead healthier and longer lives.
“The Healthy Fall Festival will create a lasting impact for individuals and families,” said Frank Placenti, board chairman of Equality Health Foundation. “The availability of health screenings, vaccines and immunizations, fresh produce and 1,000 Thanksgiving turkeys provides the community with important social connections and vital access to well-being resources.”
Each Healthy Fall Festival event attracts thousands from the community. The organization welcomes the participation of sponsors at partnership levels including Health Innovator ($10,000) Health Champion ($5,000), Health Advocate ($2,500), and Health Supporter ($1,500).
