Open Arms: Family Resource Fair Brings Community Together

Last weekend, our beloved New York City experienced something truly special. The Open Arms: Family Resource Fair took place at The Shed, and it was a day to remember! This event brought together various organizations and businesses, all with one goal in mind: to support and uplift our community.

The event was lead by The Shed, an organization focused on supporting innovative art and ideas across all forms of creativity, and Fundavenyc, a non-profit created to support the process of migrants into becoming established New Yorkers. 

The fair was buzzing with excitement from the moment the doors opened. Families were greeted with warm smiles and open arms, setting the tone for a day filled with positivity. There were booths for health services, educational resources, job assistance, and even fun activities for kids.

Health and Wellness

One of the highlights was the free vision screenings offered by Rainbow Vision. It was a great opportunity for kids to check on their eye’s health without worrying about the cost. Dentists were also there, giving advice on healthy habits and how to take care of our teeths at home.

Activities for Kids

The kids had a blast with painting and coloring and the opportunity to explore their creativity. These activities not only provided entertainment but also allowed parents to explore the fair while their children were happily engaged. Additionally, at the event was present Jorge Torrealba the Venezuelan artist that has made their mission to spread joy by making caricatures for kids and grownups. 

Activities for Kids

What stood out the most was the sense of community. Local organizations informed the community on public health and safety, others donated food and drinks, and volunteers worked tirelessly to ensure the event ran smoothly, and every participant was there to offer help. It was clear that when we come together, we can make a big difference in each other’s lives.

As the day came to an end, families left full of resources, new connections, and hopeful hearts. The Open Arms: Family Resource Fair wasn’t just an event; it was a powerful reminder that we are stronger together. We’re already looking forward to next year’s fair and the continued support it will bring to our wonderful community.
