Emory Saint Joseph’s Hospital is hosting the 3rd annual Spring Fling Craft Fair from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., March 30 and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., March 31. 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.

Sale proceeds this year will benefit 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 of Mercy 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 13 clinics and medical coach sites. The Spring Fling Craft Fair will be held in the Atrium level of the 5671 Doctors Building on the Emory Saint Joseph’s campus. Free parking is available. For more information, call 678-843-6122.
