The resources and services included information regarding programs and grant opportunities available to small businesses in the area, senior citizens services, and vaccinations administered by Hudson Regional Health.

Additionally, Menendez’s office was available to assist constituents with immigration and passport casework.

“Bringing these resources and services to the citizens that need them is essential to ensure Union City’s community receives the necessary care and information they need to live full, happy lives here in Hudson County,” Guy said in a statement.

“I’m proud to have worked with Mayor Stack, Commissioner Cedeno and Rep. Menendez to bring together all the municipal, County, and federal resources available to them in a relaxed and convenient atmosphere.”

The Union City Community Resource Fair is the third installment of these events, with the previous two held in Bayonne and Kearny.

“Working together with Hudson County, we were able to bring vital services, information, and outreach to Union City. I had a great time meeting with Union City residents and enjoyed providing meaningful support to our community,” Stack added.

” … It was an amazing opportunity to speak and interact with the families and community members at our Union City Community Resource Fair, and ensure they received the assistance they needed from Hudson County’s host of supportive resources,” noted Cedeno.

Community Resource Fairs will be coming to all 12 municipalities in the county and the upcoming event will be held in Jersey City.

“The Union City Resource Fair connects and delivers dozens of County and City assistance programs and services immediately to the community. With our community leaders and representatives on the ground, constituents are able to receive the assistance they require with economic relief, immigration, food assistance, and senior services among others,” stated Menendez.

“I’m proud to have worked with County Executive Guy, Mayor Stack, Commissioner Cedeno, and their teams to bring these resources together for Union City’s citizens and families.”
