First 5 San Diego Joins in Day of the Child
On Saturday, April 18, 2015, the Chula Vista Community Collaborative, in collaboration with other community-based organizations and business sponsors, hosted the 15th Annual Day of the Child Community FUN Fair, themed, “Children’s Opportunities, Our Responsibilities.” The free family event provided resources to keep children safe, healthy and well informed of services in the community, and to keep children and families engaged in healthy and interactive activities. The event focused on providing a safer and healthier environment for young people by promoting family and community togetherness. There were fun activities such as entertainment, face painting, performers, dance contests, puppets, magic show, story time, and games. The fair had over 100 informational and interactive booths that served approximately 4,000 children and families. First 5 San Diego sponsored the event, along with other community organizations such as San Ysidro Health Center, UCSD Health System, SDG&E, Walmart, California Department of Public Health, and Family Health Centers of San Diego.
