The RPC’s Early Childhood Education Program is hosting a Family and Community Engagement Resource Fair on Saturday, September 14, at Hessel Park in Champaign (1400 Grandview Drive). Free and open to the public, the Fair is scheduled to last from 10am to 2pm.

The fair is designed to educate the community and increase awareness of the many services and programs offered by the RPC and our Community Partners. In addition to the RPC, there will be over 20 organizations from around the community making information available about what they provide. There will also be food and kids’ activities for families and individuals who plan on attending.
