Cranston Community Health Celebration Night – TONIGHT 

The Cranston Public Library, Cranston Senior Enrichment Center, and the OneCranston Health Equity Zone are joining forces to host Cranston’s first ever Community Health Celebration Night on Tuesday, March 29 from 5:00 – 7:00 PM at the Cranston Senior Enrichment Center, 1070 Cranston Street.

This free event is open to everyone in the community.

As part of the Healthy Families at the Cranston Public Library initiative, the celebration will feature local Cranston agencies focused on healthy living for the whole family.

Agencies, among others, in attendance will include:

Cranston Fire Department

Comprehensive Community Action Program (CCAP)

Cranston Family Center

Rhode Island Parent Information Network (RiPIN)

Elizabeth Buffum Chace Center

Cranston Substance Abuse Task Force

Alzheimer’s Association of RI

HealthSource RI 

Light refreshments will be served and there will be raffle prizes, kid’s crafts, giveaways, music, and more. 

“We wanted to have a one-of-a-kind gathering that showcased all the local Cranston agencies who are there to help our residents lead healthy lives,” said Julie Holden, Assistant Library Director. “Our partnership with the Cranston Senior Enrichment Center and the OneCranston Health Equity Zone (HEZ) has been a terrific way to make sure we are getting the best health information out to the community.”

In 2021, the Cranston Public Library received a $29,500 grant from the Network of the National Libraries of Medicine to begin a health outreach program that connects people with factual and timely health information. The goal of the Health Families Initiative is to reach multiple populations in Cranston and surrounding communities, with a specific focus on speakers of languages other than English.
