SUMMARY: The Collier County Sheriff’s Office will host its third annual free Health and Safety Fair on Saturday, June 27, in Golden Gate Estates.

Some of these resources will include a blood drive, bike maintenance, texting while driving simulator, dental services, fire safety information, tennis lessons for families, literacy materials, tail light installations and much more.
