HAUBSTADT—The extravaganza benefiting the Isaiah 1:17 Project has moved to a new venue at Haubstadt Community School this Saturday from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.

Co-organizer Marcia Lambert says the group has been working to build as many “blessing bags” as they can to benefit children entering foster care. She says the bags are made up of pajamas, toiletry items, a book or activity book, stuffed animal, socks, underwear, water bottle, diapers as needed and other everyday items.

Lambert said the move from the Vincennes University Gibson County campus to Tri-State Speedway. But Saturday's rain forecast prompted the move to Haubstadt Community School to assure the event isn't rained out.

“There will be about 40 vendors,” Lambert said. “It’s really going to be more like a mini fair.”

The list of activities include tours of emergency vehicles, police cars and firetruck, kids characters, McGruff the crime dog, Safety Sam, snickerdoodle art, food, facepainting, petting zoo, outdoor games,concert ticket giveaway and live music and more.

“It will be fun with a purpose,” she said.

She says the most important part of the event is raising awareness of kids in foster care.

“I think there are a lot of misconceptions out there, but there is always something someone can do to help.”

The event is free, however cash donations are accepted.
