30 free exhibitor spaces are available on a first-come first-served basis; an 8-foot table, table cover & 2 chairs are provided. To reserve space, contact Diane Bemiller, Catholic Charities Crisis Navigator, at 419.524.0733, ext. 228, or email [email protected].

“Catholic Charities partners with the Ohio Attorney General’s office each year to educate and empower consumers on how to make informed financial affairs decisions,” said Rebecca Owens, Catholic Charities Regional Director. “Those most vulnerable to scams and identify theft tend to be those most in need of food, shelter and medical assistance. We do our best to be proactive in educating our community on important financial matters.”
