In 2011, we incorporated the Day of Compassion into Freedom Fest.  It resonated so well with the vision and purpose of the event that we have offered it ever since. Be sure to read below what services are being provided and their times of operation so you don’t miss anything from our compassion component. Also, please note, while the compassion component operates from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, items and resources are only available as supplies last.

We are pleased that Mercyhealth in partnership with other community organizations will be providing free screenings and awareness information at Freedom Fest from 10:00am-2:00pm. Learn about prevention and detection of cancer, test how well you are washing germs from your hands, see how a heart beats and much more! There will be Mercyhealth professionals to answer your questions in your effort to stay healthy. Mercyhealth will once again be giving away bicycle helmets for children starting at 11:00am while supplies last. There will be plenty of other children’s activities available within the tent.

FF14-021CONVOY OF HOPE

In 2018, we are partnering with Convoy of Hope in bigger and better ways than ever before. In addition to their semi-trailer of groceries and household supplies that allows us to give away over 5,000 free bags to our guests of honor, we are excited to be partnering with various churches, businesses, and organizations from the community to bring you so much more. In addition to the health services and groceries, we will also be providing free haircuts, free children’s shows, free family portraits, community, job, and veteran’s services. There will be areas to gather nutritional information and how to make your own healthy super smoothies as well as build your own garden. We’ll even help provide some seeds to get you started. Of course, we want to be available to offer prayer to those who might be needed it as well. All of this is free while supplies last and operates from 10:00am to 2:00pm.
