Supervisor Ridley-Thomas joins Senator in offering school supplies and health screenings LOS ANGELES – Senator Roderick D. Wright (D-Inglewood) and L.A. County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas will once again host the annual 25th Senate District School Readiness and Health Fair on Saturday, August 25, offering district students free school supplies and health screenings at a fun and informative event. Thousands of students have participated in this highly-anticipated annual event during Senator Wright’s first term representing the 25th Senate District. Presented in conjunction with National Family Life & Education Center and the Gardena Valley Chamber of Commerce, this festive event seeks to get the school year off to a healthy and productive start for students ages 5-14 from throughout the district. We know that hearing and vision deficits, left undiscovered, can hold a student back in the classroom and beyond. The free health screenings offered at this event will include vision, hearing and dental exams. Each student must be accompanied by an adult to participate, and an immunization or shot record is required to receive immunizations. "It is one of the highlights of my year to be able to help make these services available to the kids in my community, to give them the best start I can to the school year ahead," said Wright. In addition to school supplies and health screenings, participants will enjoy food and entertainment as they explore the many resources available to them. Sponsors for this year’s event include Time Warner Cable, AT&T, AQMD, McDonald’s, Nestlé, 99¢ Only Stores and Normandie Casino. The fair will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Jesse Owens County Park, located at 9651 S. Western Avenue (at Century Boulevard). WHO: Senator Roderick D. Wright (D-Inglewood) L.A.
