The Youth and Family Opportunity (YFO) Program organized a community flea market on Saturday, October 22nd, 2016 at the La Familia Fuller location. They had about 15 vendors selling items ranging from food, clothes, furniture, art, and other miscellaneous items. The La Familia staff put up a table to raise money for their Hijos del Sol (HDS) youth development program, to raise money for next year’s NCLR conference, which they have traditionally attended. La Familia had about 80-100 community people come throughout the day.
This gives La Familia an opportunity to not only fundraise, but to also bring the community closer to La Familia's site and services. As a result of outreaching to 1,000+ people across Hayward, La Familia has had countless people call and come into the La Familia Fuller center to see what type of services and programs offered. The vendors and community have asked if La Familia would host another Community Flea Market and have scheduled the next Community Flea Market on November 19th, 2016.
