This event is brought to you by Somos Familia Valle and The Social Impact Center.

LaVidaCare's mission is to build a community and raise awareness that these services are easy, accessible, essential, and available right in here in SFV. Come out and support the LaVidaCare booth and enjoy great food from local vendors!
