Your BBB in the Community

August 07, 2008

Your Better Business Bureau Serving Denver/Boulder participated in the 12th Annual “Neighbors in Health” fair presented by Kaiser Permanente on Sunday August 3rd. This is our fourth year as an exhibitor. Thanks to the generosity of the Kaiser Organization, hundreds of people received free essential health care screenings, consultations, and immunizations. People began lining up as early as 7 a.m. to take advantage of the services provided at this much needed, annual event.

Your Better Business Bureau hosted tables with both English and Spanish language literature. Better Business Bureau staff were on hand to provide information about our services. Everyone enjoyed the fair, while waiting between appointments. We also offered sweet treats, games, activities with prizes to make our area appealing to all ages.

Now a vulnerable group of consumers are more aware of your BBB serving Denver/Boulder. We provided help with pre-purchase information. Your Better Business Bureau makes a difference by creating more wise consumers in our marketplace.

There were a wide range of exhibitors, from nonprofit organizations to for profit companies. All of which provided information and some much more; such as, drinks, food, toys, trinkets, dental packs, and even school supplies, including back packs. The event was successful and fully enjoyed by all. We plan to be there again next year, continuing to promote healthy and aware consumers.
