Annual Events

Family Health Expo


Spring 2011 Health Expo to be held April 16, 2011!

The Family Health Expo is an annual event that has been coordinated by the Partnership for several years.  The expo provides health screenings and educational materials to the general public.  Children enjoy learning activities sponsored by Parents As Teachers as well as demonstrations on safety.  The expo is supported by local businesses, organizations, and agencies.  Held in the Spring, the April, 2009 Family Health Expo  provided mammograms,  blood sugar, cholesterol, and vision screenings; and had more than 60 exhibits with information on accessing local resources to support family health and mental health.  Donations and in-kind support brought more than $39,000 in goods and services to the fair.  Next program year the Health Expo will be held on April 16, 2011 at Mineral Area College Field House from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.  Click HERE for Exhibitor's Packet, Registration Form and Info!


Make A Difference Day

Celebrated in October, communities across the nation are asked to coordinate volunteers in a project benefiting their community in honor of Make A Difference Day.  Last year SFCCP coordinated a food drive and distributed the proceeds to the area's five food pantries.  Eight local grocery stores participated in the event by displaying posters and allowing volunteers to collect goods purchased for donation to local pantries.  Next event: October 2010.  We invite your family, group, business, church or organization to host a food drive during the month of October and deliver the items to the food pantry of your choice.  

Season of Hope

Since 1999, Caring Communities has coordinated a countywide effort to provide all the children of St. Francois County with a joyous holiday.  This is such an exciting and fulfilling community-wide effort serving children who live in no-to-low income families.  It is accomplished through the coordinated efforts of the entire community.  Click here to learn more.

Blue Sunday - April 2010!

Blue Sunday is an awareness event designed for the faith community.  It is a time for focused prayer for the victims of child abuse and those that rescue them.  Blue is the accepted 'memorial ribbon' color for honoring the victims of child abuse and neglect.  Press here for printable resources.
