“You know people need assistance, and we thought it would be a great event to put together, bring it back to the community, so people can get the help that they need and find all of these resources in one place,” said Ebony Vizcaino.
On top of getting help with electric water, and gas bills, there were also free diapers, clothing, food, and flu shots.
