FAMILY SUPPORT NETWORK OF CENTRAL CAROLINA TO HOST 6TH ANNUAL UNITE FESTIVAL
Family Support Network of Central Carolina (FSNCC), is excited to announce the 6th Annual UNITE Festival on Sunday, May 7, from 1:00-4:00 p.m. at LeBauer Park. The UNITE Festival stands for "Understanding Inclusion Takes Everyone" and is a free event aimed at providing resources for families of children with disabilities or special healthcare needs.
“The event was created to ‘unite’ the special needs community and the greater community to provide understanding and acceptance,” said Carter Davenport, FSNCC Board Chair. "This festival brings more than 25 organizations and their services together at one event for families and caregivers to provide a platform for them to exhibit their services. Bringing everyone together in one event enhances the community's knowledge of available resources."
The festival is being co-hosted by Greensboro Parks and Recreation, Downtown Greensboro Inc. (DGI), and Greensboro Downtown Parks. This year, there will be a variety of family-friendly activities including story-tellers, a drum circle, games, dance performances, face painting, music, a fire truck, and more!
"We are excited to partner with FSNCC to co-host the UNITE Festival," said Stacy Calfo, Director of Marketing for DGI. "This is a great opportunity for families and caregivers to access valuable resources while enjoying a fun-filled and inclusive afternoon."
The UNITE Festival is an opportunity to support the disability community in the area while having a blast on a Sunday afternoon. Don't miss out on this exciting event that promotes inclusion and understanding in the community.
