On Saturday July 28, the 6th annual Fun in the Sun Fair will take place at Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services’ (SFBFS) North Sacramento location, the Saca Community Learning Center.
I interviewed the Programs Director, Genevieve Deignan to learn a bit more about the event. Genevieve started volunteering at SFBFS in the spring of 2005. Then she worked at SFBFS as an AmeriCorps member from the fall of 2005 to the fall of 2006. Directly after completing her year of service, she became a staff member at Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services. Since 2006, Genevieve has worked as the Adult Education Program Manager, Building Director and now the Programs Director for the last two years. She loves her job so much that she is able to say that there is “never a day I don’t want to come to work.”
The Fun in the Sun Fair has been going for six years. Genevieve and other staff members at the Saca Community Learning Center created the Fun in the Sun Fair for other nonprofit agencies to come and share information and resources with community members.
The Fun in the Sun Fair is open to the community. There will be fun activities, food, information about different programs at SFBFS and other agencies. The event is entirely free and will be held at the Saca Community Learning Center at 2469 Rio Linda Blvd, Sacramento, CA 95815.
