In high school, while you were learning geometry, we were cutting class to get drunk under the bleachers. Since we cant remember the last time we were required to recite the cosign of a square, we figure it was time well spent. Back then we felt like we wanted information we could actually apply to real life -- and we still do, which is why instead of vegging out in front of the TV set today, were heading to the Mall of the Americas for Health & Prosperity Day.
From 10 to 2, various vendors like Citibank, Jobing.com, and Jackson Memorial Hospital will be on hand to open bank accounts, prepare taxes, provide health screenings, give job and healthcare counseling, and more. Its no free lunch, but it is an opportunity to get a free lesson on how to navigate the system. Call 305-576-5001, or visit www.prosperitycampaign.com.
