      Foundation Sponsors Fifth Annnual Community Festival
      Children and Youth are Focus of Event

      NORTH PHILADELPHIA  For the last four years the Absalom Jones Foundation (a non-profit
      501(c)3 organization) has sponsored a Children and Youth Community Festival on the grounds of The Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge Complex located at 4301 N. Broad Street (Broad Street & Hunting Park Ave.) Each year the event has provided health screenings and identity kits to hundreds of children from the Community. Through community Outreach Programs, promotional and informational items have also been distributed.  
      Carnival rides, games, refreshments and prizes, are all highlights of the day's events according to a spokesperson for the Absalom Jones Foundation.

      This year the  Fifth Children and Youth Festival will be held on
      Saturday July 19th, from 11:00am to 3:00pm.  The event will again provide
      free non-evasive medical and health screenings to all neighborhood
      school age children (accompanied by guardian). Some of the
      organizations taking part will be the Albert Einstein Healthcare
      Network, and Philadelphia College of Optometry. There will also be
      volunteers on hand from the CHIP (Child Identification Program) to
      provide a free video, fingerprinting and DNA kit for the children.

      Absalom Jones Foundation is asking neighborhood, Block and/or Civic organizations to assist in getting this information out to their constituencies and members. According to a statement issued by the group "There is no solicitation at the Children's Festival all
      items and services are free".
