On Nov. 12, Benton First UMC, in partnership with Saline County Cares, hosted a Community Resource Fair at the church.

The fair featured more than 25 vendors, including nonprofits, businesses and government agencies. The goal of the fair is to provide resources for the low-income population in Saline County.

These resources include free flu shots, a free meal, information on where to receive medical treatment and employment help, and more.

Organizations such as the Department of Human Resources, the Churches Joint Council on Human Needs, and the Federal TRiO program were on-hand to assist people at the fair.
