Volunteers needed for Livingston County’s annual Community Connect
Area residents are invited to attend the 15th Annual Livingston County Community Connect on Saturday, February 5, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., at 2|42 Community Church, 4526 Grand River Ave, Brighton.
The Livingston County Homeless Continuum of Care Committee hosts this free event each year to connect people with needed information, resources, and free services in a convenient “one stop shop” environment. In addition to information from many local nonprofits, guests will have access to legal consultation, food, books, personal care items, haircuts, laundry detergent, socks and much more.
Breakfast and Lunch are also provided on-site, at no cost. No registration is required. Guests are responsible for their own transportation to and from the event.
Hundreds of dedicated volunteers are needed to welcome guests, help them find resources, keep the facility clean and safe, take-down after the event, and also set-up on Friday evening. Free lunch, snacks, and beverages are also provided to Saturday volunteers.
The Committee recognizes the concern for public health in gatherings, so to mitigate the spread of disease, mask wearing is encouraged. If you are experiencing any symptoms on event day, please stay home and rest.
Community Connect 2022 is sponsored by Brighton Masonic Lodge, Livingston Sunrise Rotary, The Homeless Continuum of Care and Livingston County United Way.
Volunteers may register on-line at https://bit.ly/3HACNOf or call Liz Welch for more information at (517) 494-3000. Registrations are due by January 21st.
