It’s the fifth year in a row for the Partnership to End Poverty's "Project Connect" at the Deschutes County Fairgrounds. The one day free event will help those low income or homeless get some services they really need. "What is, is over 130 agencies and organizations are bringing the services that they have and assistance and support that they have to the hooker creek event arena. And we're inviting anybody who is struggling to make ends meet or is homeless, to come down and access that." Cindy Pasko with Project Connect says the event is open to everyone in the tri-county area that needs help last year they helped about three thousand people. Transportation is provided for people who need it; contact the Partnership to End Poverty for locations. Project Connect is September 24th from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
