Utility hosts day of fun and learning

Tuesday, May 17, 2022 by Tai Moses

Austin Energy is preparing for its annual Community Connections Resource Fair, a “free, family-friendly event that combines fun with learning to assist our customers who sometimes could use a little help to meet basic needs,” according to the utility’s announcement. The fair, co-hosted by local service providers and city departments, features “fun and informative demonstrations and presentations on community assistance resources available for moderate- to low-income families in the Austin area.” Community providers will be on hand to offer info about medical assistance programs, veterinary services, food services and housing repair programs. Staff from Austin Energy and local fire, police and EMS departments will make an appearance to provide information and facilitate some kid-friendly activities like demonstrating how a fire truck works. Saturday, May 21, 11:30 a.m.-3 p.m., Lyndon B. Johnson High School, 7309 Lazy Creek Dr.
