Lafayette County Project Connect

Project Community Connect is an effort to connect underserved and uninsured adults in need with the resources in our community! These one-day public health clinics are designed for the uninsured and/or underserved adults. All services offered this day are FREE! 

Check out our 2017 Project Connect Events!

Buckner Project Connect is Saturday, April 29 in the same location as last year at First Baptist Church and the United Methodist Church (road closures are planned to facilitate the event).  It is not too late for a booth for those interested. Send an email to Bob Vickers, bob.vickers@hccnetwork for a Vendor Registration form.
Anyone wanting to volunteer or help with event planning are encouraged to email Bob Vickers for details. As always, we will serve anyone from any county who shows up but want people around Buckner to know we are there to serve them! HCC is asking for churches and other community groups to help gather items for Exit Bags such as toilet paper, paper towels, deodorant, combs and brushes, as well as many other items.

Odessa Project Connect is Saturday, July 22nd and we will need you for the Leadership and Planning Team. We won’t start meeting until early May or so but will need help from Odessa area folks. Please plan on joining us and helping. Last year’s event was amazing and we want this year’s event to be just as awesome for so many people. Please help with this!  I will make this poster as we get closer to the event. We need many of the same items as above for this day, too.
Higginsville Project Connect is Saturday, November 4th and we won’t start meeting until late August or early September. I know it seems like we just finished with this but please start now talking to people around you and help recruit folks that can volunteer and serve on the Leadership and Planning Teams. I will make this poster early in the fall. There are many ways you or your school, church or family can help! We will gather the same items as last year and above but also blankets and more.
These one-day service events are a great way for local churches, civic groups, chambers of commerce, seniors to gain community service hours, businesses and others to serve those less fortunate in the community and develop team-building time together with some of the biggest hearts in their community. Please help us spread the word about them and join to make them happen! We need you and your help! You can help at any or all of them!
