A one day event at the Deschutes County Fairgrounds brings hundreds of volunteers and services for low income and the homeless together. This is the fifth year for Project Connect. Spokesperson Marty Betsch says they are expecting the biggest attendance yet, because the numbers of needy are growing rapidly.

"But I’m very, very excited this year because it is going to be our biggest yet. Unfortunately in Central Oregon, our homeless count is going up. The number of 70-plus, the number of kids 12 and under, it really breaks your heart. So this kind of an organization is really exciting, because we're out there, providing all kinds of services to them that they're not going to get elsewhere."  Betsch was a guest on today's "Your Town" on KBND. Project Connect is Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Hooker Creek Event Center, and it's free. Contact the Partnership to End Poverty if you need transportation to the event.
