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!
Odessa Project Connect is Saturday, July 22, 2017. Please download this important event information, now:
Dear Service Provider and Volunteers,
Odessa Project Connect is Saturday, July 22 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the same location as last year—Odessa High School. But we need you in order for this event to be successful. Please dowload the above information and join us and provide services for this great one-day event of serving others! We need volunteers and service providers to help with haircuts, lunch, set-up and dismantle, shuttle teams, etc.. We need you to respond by Friday July 14, 2017 (although the earlier the better).
Also, join us for the next Leadership Team and Planning Meeting at the Odessa Public Library, 204 S. 1st Street on Tuesday, July 11, 7 p.m. to 8 p.m..
Thank you for all you do to serve others! By the way, we are still looking for financial sponsors for this event. We’ll put your name and logo on the backs of the t-shirts and in all the material! Think about it and call Suzanne at 660.259.2440 for more information. Thank you!
Higginsville Project Connect - 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!
