Catholic Charities Hosts March 3 Consumer Resource Fair
MANSFIELD—Catholic Charities is hosting the 8th Annual Consumer Resource Fair, as part of National Consumer Protection Week, on Saturday, March 3, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Richland Mall.
“The purpose of National Consumer Protection Week is to educate and empower consumers on how to make informed decisions when it comes to 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 because they’re desperate to meet basic needs of food, shelter and medical care.”
Catholic Charities and 20+ organizations will provide free information on managing money and debt, protecting personal identification, and avoiding identify theft and scams.
Participants include the Ohio Attorney General’s office, Civista Bank, GROhio Credit Union, Mechanics Bank, Richland Bank, Sutton Bank, Richland County Adult Protective Services/JFS, Mansfield-Richland Public Library/First Call-211, Habitat for Humanity, Third St. Family Health Services, and Ohio Division of Financial Institutions. Richland County Sheriff’s office will be fingerprinting.
“Catholic Charities partners with the Ohio Attorney General’s office each year,” said Rebecca Owens, Catholic Charities Regional Director. “We do our best to be proactive in educating our community on important financial matters.”
