For those people struggling in this difficult economy, there is a resource fair in Tacoma Saturday to help them pull through the hard times.

Pierce County for Change, a grassroots organization formed last December, is sponsoring the Resource Fair which will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Organizers said Tacoma Power will be there to discuss reduced bills. The Episcopal Church will help with foreclosure issues. Health agencies along with AFL-CIO Community Services and representatives of the Pierce County Labor Council will be there.

Information will be provided on topics such as ways to cut energy and food costs, lower cost health and dental programs and education programs.

The fair is being held at the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Hall at 3049 South 36th St. The event is free and open to the public.
