Always Gift Baskets and Natural Essentials presents the AGB Black Health Expo, which will take place at the Cannon Street YMCA on December 10 from 1pm-4pm. This is the first year that Always Gift Baskets will organize this event, which they hope will educate the communities of Charleston on the importance of their health and the various ways they can manage it.
The event features various small business owners in the Charleston community as vendors, as well as CPR and product demonstrations. There will be life and wellness speakers through the event, including Central Station’s Jeffrey Nickleson and Sacred Rootz’s Khet Waas Hutip. Food and refreshments will be provided by vegan catering services and restaurants in Charleston.
The event is free to the public, but vendors will be selling products and services to patrons. Always Gift Baskets encourages patrons to bring the family out for the occasion as this event can be a great learning opportunity of people of any age or background. There will be giveaways from each vendor throughout the afternoon for patrons who purchase raffle tickets.
“We are a family owned business, and we see the community as our family,” states Always Gift Baskets co-owner Damion Owens. “We created this company to help educate others on the things we use on our bodies and put in our bodies to hopefully encourage them to be more mindful and make better decisions. This event is our way of joining with other professionals and community servants to accomplish a goal that we all share, while bonding with the communities we love.”
