Annual event offers health screenings, school supplies, backpacks and more | Community Spirit
The First Choice Community Center is gearing up for its annual Jump-Start Back-to-School event on Saturday, July 28. This free event is from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and features free back-to-school information, health screenings, children’s activities and backpacks with schools supplies while they last. The First Choice Community Center, located at 3315 Broad River Road, offers information about First Choice benefits and services available to Midlands area families.
“We are very excited about this year’s event,” said Lillian Suarez, director of marketing for Select Health of South Carolina. “Parents will find a wide array of resources to help them get their children ready for the upcoming school year, and the children will be able to enjoy arts, crafts and games throughout the day.”
The First Choice Community Center opened its doors in 2009 as a place for individuals with limited incomes to learn about programs, services, and community resources available to assist them. It is located in the Widewater Square shopping center and is owned and operated by Select Health of South Carolina as a service to the community.
Select Health offers the state’s largest and oldest Medicaid health plan, First Choice. For more information about the First Choice Community Center or the Jump-Start Back-to-School event, call 1-888-676-9588 or visit: www.selecthealthofsc.com/community/community-center/index.aspx
