ST. MARYS – For the fourth consecutive year, state Rep. Matt Gabler (R-Clearfield/Elk) and Life and Independence for Today (LIFT) are partnering to host a Disability and Senior Resource Expo on Wednesday, July 26, from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. at Edgewood Hall, 717 S. St. Marys St., St. Marys.
“The expo is a great opportunity for senior citizens and their loved ones, as well as members of our community living with disabilities, to check out all that is available to them,” Gabler said.
“With more than 60 vendors on hand, the event is also a chance for LIFT to display the various services they perform in Elk County and the surrounding six-county region.”
LIFT was established in 1994 by people with disabilities and serves as a Center for Independent Living (CIL).
In addition to providing independent living skills training, they can assist with advocacy issues and offer peer mentoring services, information and referrals and much more.
Various types of health screenings will also be performed during the expo. Admission is free and lunch will be served.
Questions about this or any legislative issue should be directed to Gabler’s St. Marys office at 814-781-6301 or LIFT at 814-781-3050.
