Wednesday, October 21, will be an exciting day for local community members as Whiteside County TRIAD will be hosting a drive-through health fair!
Participants, from the safety of their vehicles, will be able to drive through and meet with several health and safety vendors so there will be no personal contact following current health guidelines.
Additionally, Gaffey Home Nursing & Hospice of Sterling will be on-site offering flu shots. “Even with the current COVID-19 issues, we want to make sure our senior community members have the ability to get out and get valuable information in a safe way. After all, their continual health is important and we cannot forget their needs,” Kristopher Schmidt, Chair of the Whiteside County TRIAD explained.
Once more, the drive-through health fair is October 21, 2020, from 10:00 am until 12:00 pm in the Northland Mall parking lot in Sterling; look for signs.
As an extra bonus, the first 50 guests will receive a tote with a mystery gift card sponsored by Heritage Woods of Sterling. “Like our other events, come rain or shine, all of us at Whiteside County TRIAD have worked hard to bring this opportunity to the public. Our focus continues to be for the senior citizens in our communities!” Schmidt commented.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Whiteside County TRIAD at firstname.lastname@example.org or 708.320.1290. Likewise, if your company would like to participate as a vendor, contact Mrs. Beth Sterk (email@example.com) at the Whiteside County Senior Center (815.622.9230).
In closing, Whiteside County TRIAD humbly accepts monetary donations through their account at Sauk Valley Bank. If you would like more information, to volunteer, or attend meetings, please contact any member of TRIAD at firstname.lastname@example.org or through Facebook.
TRIAD began as a national initiative sponsored by the American Association of Retired Persons, the International Association of Chiefs of Police and the National Sheriff’s Association. TRIAD’s have been developed in communities throughout Illinois and the nation to promote crime prevention for older citizens. Illinois TRIAD was one of the first organizations in the nation to guide a statewide response to the critical issue of crime against seniors.
