Boys & Girls Annual Back to School Family Health Fair

NCE Salem Volunteers Time!

NCE Salem Associates participated in the Boys and Girls Club 5th Annual Back to School Family Health Fair and stuffed over 2,000 backpacks that were distributed to local families! Total volunteer time: 15 hours and it was time well spent!

During the Health Fair:

  • Over 1,500 backpacks and school supplies were handed out to students
  • 788 children and over 443 adults enjoyed a healthy lunch
  • 75 vision and hearing checks were provided
  • 120 dental screenings were provided by local dentists
  • 500 child ID kits were issued by the Oregon State Police

The Boys and Girls Club provides a safe place for kids to learn and grow. Helping youth become responsible, caring citizens and acquire skills for participating in the democratic process is the main thrust of these programs. They also develop leadership skills and provide opportunities for planning, decision-making, contributing to Club and community and celebrating our national heritage.
