Davis holds successful drive-thru Senior Fair

State Rep. Austin Davis, D-Allegheny, held a successful drive-thru Senior Fair in McKeesport today.

Older Mon Valley residents came to Renziehausen Park, where they collected information on resources and state-related programs and also had the opportunity to drop off medication for safe disposal by the Allegheny County Sheriff’s Office from the comfort of their cars. Some residents took advantage of getting a flu shot provided by UPMC.

“There has been a lack of connection during the pandemic, so I felt it was necessary to hold an event like this, where I could safely reconnect with folks I haven’t seen in a while, as well as meet some new faces from the community,” Davis said. “It was wonderful to have one-on-one conversations and be able to directly hear from the people I serve.

“This was a unique experience holding an event where seniors stayed inside their cars, but I’m pleased we were able to help them leave the event with information on resources and programs that are beneficial to their lives.”
