Catholic Charities Hosts Consumer Resource Fair March 2

MANSFIELD, OH—Catholic Charities is hosting the Ninth Annual Consumer Resource Fair, this Saturday, March 2, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Richland Mall, in Mansfield, OH. Participating organizations will provide free information on such topics as managing money and debt, protecting personal identification, wellness, and avoiding identify theft and scams.

“The purpose of National Consumer Protection Week is to educate and empower consumers on how to make informed decisions when it comes to money and their financial affairs,” said Rebecca Owens, Regional Director for Mansfield Catholic Charities. “We continue to see many people being preyed upon by scams and identify theft, while trying to meet their basic needs for food, shelter and medical care.”

Over 20 organizations will participate in the resource fair, including: the Ohio Attorney General’s Office, Ohio Consumer’s Counsel, Richland County Sheriff Dept., Mansfield City Schools Adult Education, Ohio Department of Commerce, Civista Bank, GROhio Community Credit Union, Mechanics Bank, Richland County JFS/Adult Protective Services, Third Street Clinic, Mansfield/Richland Public Library, Habitat for Humanity, Domestic Violence Shelter, Community Action for Capable Youth, Blue Rose Mission/Trinity United Methodist Church-home repairs, StarFish Project of Richland County/Opiate Task Force, and YWCA Child Care Resource/Referral.

Catholic Charities has partnered with the Ohio Attorney General’s office for nine years to host this Consumer Resource Fair to educate and empower the community as part of National Consumer Protection Week. This year, National Consumer Protection Week is being celebrated March 3-9, 2019.
