Project connects services

Project Connect is coming Sept. 22, when more than 800 volunteers will join forces to help an estimated 3,400 Central Oregonians in need of free medical, dental and social services.
   Held at the Hooker Creek Arena at the Deschutes County Fairgrounds, Project Connect is a one-day event serving guests who are experiencing homelessness or are underserved.
   The event, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., serves people from Jefferson, Deschutes, and Crook counties and the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs.
   "This tremendous undertaking could not be possible without the support of our partners, community agencies and volunteers who take on the challenge with vigor and passion," said Shellie Campbell, Project Connect coordinator.
