Grand Junction, Colorado – IntelliTec College is hosting a Community Resource Fair at its Grand Junction campus on Saturday, July 27th. This community event will feature area resources that can assist local residents with specific needs such as housing, daycare, mental health issues, back-to-school transition, employment and more. Proceeds from food sales at the event will go to a community outreach fund that will primarily benefit IntelliTec students and their families.

The Community Resource Fair will be held from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 27th at IntelliTec’s Grand Junction campus: 772 Horizon Drive, Grand Junction, CO 81506.

IntelliTec College chose to put on the Community Resource Fair after the local school district changed the date that the kids will head back to school. Community Outreach Representative Sandy Sheppard explained that many of these resources “can be used by the community at this time to help with the transition of back to school and everyday life.” For example, the local Kids Aid and Backpacks for Kids programs help supply food to hungry school-age children.
