Catholic Charities Hosts Consumer Resource Fair March 7 in Mansfield
MANSFIELD, OH—Beat the winter blues by coming to a Beach Party at the Mall! Catholic Charities is hosting the 10th Annual National Consumer Resource Fair, Saturday, March 7, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Richland Mall, in Mansfield, OH.
Catholic Charities and 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 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 identity theft while trying to meet their basic needs of food, shelter and medical needs.”
Over 20 organizations will participate in the Consumer Resource Fair, including the Ohio Attorney General’s Office, Ohio Consumers Council, Ohio Department of Commerce, Directions Credit Union, Richland Bank, GROhio Community Credit Union, Civista Bank, First Call-211, Adult Protective Services, local law enforcement, Mansfield City Schools Adult Education, and other social service agencies and financial institutions.
Catholic Charities has partnered with the Ohio Attorney General’s office for 10 years to participate in the annual National Consumer Protection Week to educate and empower the community. This year National Consumer Protection Week is being celebrated March 1-7, 2020.
