On October 14th 2021, Centro Unido Latino - Americano celebrated its 11th anniversary by hosting a United Cultures Health Day combined with our biweekly Food Pantry Distribution for the community of McDowell County.
Food boxes, Covid testing, vaccines as well as a mobile clinic were available thanks to our collaboration with Optumserve, Andor Labs, and WNC Community Health Dept.
We were able to give service to more than 300 families across McDowell and beyond. In addition to that, we had a visit from our City Mayor, Steve Little, who gave a proclamation for Hispanic Hertitage Month in the city of Marion NC for the first time.
Our event highlights coming together as being the essence of community, and we hope to continue to bring the community together with more interactive events and worthwhile collaborations.
