    RECAP – 8th Annual Community Resources Fair – Saturday August 20, 2022 – El Rio, Oxnard Ca

    News release

    This past Saturday, August 20, 2022, Revive Community Church hosted its 8th Annual Community Resources Fair that took place in El Rio.

    With over 45 vendors and participants confirmed, we were able to provide services and resources ranging from nutrition, education, financial, mental health, employment opportunities, social assistance, healthcare, among many others.

    Serving this underprivileged and underserved community has always been on the forefront of Revive Community Church, and serve they did. With nearly 154 families attending the event this past Saturday, and an average of 4 per family, we saw nearly 620 individuals, both adults and children attend this year’s fair.

    We registered 127 families, gave out 350 bags of groceries, 435 backpacks, 340 bags of clothes, and provided countless valuable information and materials to all in attendance. Vendors had the opportunity to connect with families, learn on the disadvantages and needs, as well as understand the different challenges and issues within this community.

    Here are what some participants had to say about the event:

    Jason Hurst – Thrivent
    “Thanks again for having us. Every interaction I’ve had with Revive, I’ve always left well loved and taken care of. Your church represents the love of Jesus well”
    Rosalind Vint – Women of Substance & Men of Honor 
    “Amazing Fair, thanks so much for having us”
    Jon Looney – ActionVC
    “Thanks again for the amazing job your team did this past weekend”
    Lorena Guereca – Vista Real Charter High School
    “I wanted to thank you for having us at the Health Fair. It was fun! We connected with parents as well as new community partners. Congratulations to you and your team for executing a well organized, fun, and educational event”

    And of course this event could not have been possible without the generous support of our sponsors, who truly stood by our side every step of the way in order to make this event happen:
