The 2nd Annual Hands Together Historic Triangle Event is a one day resource fair in Williamsburg that offers access to many services in one place to local families in need. This year’s event is coming up on Monday, February 24 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Chesapeake Bank is a sponsor for the event.
Two of Chesapeake Bank’s own employees, Sam Poole and Denise Kent, have involvement that stems back to the beginning of this beneficial community event. Poole and Kent were involved with creating this event last year as a part of The Greater Williamsburg Chamber & Tourism Alliance’s LEAD Historic Class of 2013. The class saw an opportunity to serve the homeless and precariously housed in the Historical Triangle.
This year’s resource fair will be held at Quarterpath Recreation Center off Page Street and Route 60. People in need of social services, housing services and help from non-profit agencies will find value in coming to the event and having so many community resources in one location. Guests will receive numerous services including medical, vision and dental checks, haircuts, bike repairs and notary services. Each guest will receive commissary credits that can be used to purchase, complete free of charge, food, clothing and household items they are in need of.
Volunteers are needed! For more information on how you can help with this important community event, visit this link. If you don’t have time, but would still like to help out, please download this Donation Needs List.
