Emory Saint Joseph’s Hospital is hosting the 2nd annual Spring Fling Craft Fair from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., April 28 and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., April 29. Unique gifts will be available for sale including handcrafted jewelry, rustic coolers, handbags, eco-friendly apparel and accessories, artwork, stationery and bath and body products. This year, proceeds from the sale will go to Mercy Care, Emory Saint Joseph’s community partner.

The origins of Mercy Care began after the hospital relocated from Courtland Street to Peachtree Dunwoody Road, when teams of nurses, doctors, Sisters and volunteers headed back downtown to care for Atlanta’s growing homeless population. Through the years, Mercy Care has continued to bring healthcare to those who are most vulnerable. The organization has grown from a clinic on wheels called the Mercy Mobile Unit, to 15 clinics and mobile sites currently in operation.

The Spring Fling Craft Fair will be held in the Atrium level of the 5671 Doctors Building on the Emory Saint Joseph’s campus. For more information, call 678-843-6122.
