Frio County Women, Infants & Children (WIC) collaborated with local non-profit organizations last week to host a community resource fair with the intent of giving back to the community during the pandemic and aftermath of Winter Storm Uri.
WIC representatives hosted the outreach event in Dilley on Thursday, March 18. The event aimed to bring community resources and awareness to county residents regarding nutrition, education, food resources, health education, transport services, housing and medical support.
“With all that the community has been going through because of COVID and the effects of the winter storm, we decided to bring some positive morale and let the residents of Frio County know that these non-profit organizations are here and have not forgotten about them,” a WIC representative said.
Participants in the day-long event included Dilley City Administrator Juan Estrada, Mayor Mary Ann Obregon, Pct. 4 Commissioner Jose Asuncion, Pct. 4 Justice of the Peace Lauro Flores, the Dilley Police Department, Constable Rene Lozano, County Auditor Crystal Marquez, District Clerk Ofelia Trevino, Pct. 3 JP Susan Belding, Pct. 3 Comm. Raul Carrizales, County Clerk Aaron Ibarra, Frio County Chief Deputy Peter Salinas, the Frio County Sheriff’s Office, Texas AgriLife representative Jocelin Villarreal, State Health Department representative Stephanie Del Toro, Frio Regional Hospital and urgent care facility representatives, Meals on Wheels, SA Farmer’s Market, Methodist Healthcare Ministries, the Alamo Area Council of Governments, the San Antonio Food Bank, the Dilley Volunteer Fire Department, Alamo Area Ambulance, Latched Support, the Pearsall Public Library, and DJ Angel “El Jefe” Martinez.
“We would like to thank everyone, especially the volunteers, who took time out of their busy day to help us,” a WIC representative said.
