Gainey, Wheatley sponsor weekend event at CCAC

Wellness/street fair coincides with Allegheny County voter access efforts

HOMEWOOD, Oct. 7 – State Reps. Ed Gainey and Jake Wheatley, both D-Allegheny, are hosting a wellness/street fair this weekend at the Community College of Allegheny County. The two-day event, which features health screenings, vendors, food, music, and other activities, coincides with Allegheny County opening one of its voting centers at the college.

“We want folks to know that we’ll be out here this weekend having fun and letting them know about state services and other programs -- but doing so in a safe, responsible manner,” Gainey said. “We understand the challenges that COVID has put upon our community, and it is vital that we do what we can to help people out and bring people together.”

“Nothing is more important than taking care of your health, and I’m proud to partner with Rep. Gainey to host this weekend’s street/health fair,” said Wheatley. “This safe, socially-distanced event will provide a fun, enjoyable environment where you can receive free health screenings and get valuable voting information.  I’m looking forward to it and I encourage you to attend one or both days of the fair.”

Events will run throughout Saturday and Sunday at the Allegheny County Community College, located at North Homewood Avenue.
