Together with the Milpitas Community Advisory Commission we will be focusing on public awareness of services available and how they can benefit from these services, where they can volunteer or make contributions. Together our goal is to build a sense of community by empowering individuals to take action!

There will also be a free HEALTH AND WELLNESS FAIR with the District 4-C6 Lions AJ Robinson Health Screening Van where you can have hearing, vision, blood pressure & glucose tested. FREE FLU SHOTS is also available that day.
