The Donna Howard Community Connect will take place at the Damiano Center on Thursday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
The free community event is planned and carried out by partners from several community organizations including the Damiano Center, Loaves and Fishes, Safe Haven, Life House, St Louis County, Salvation Army, Affordable Housing Coalition, and CHUM. Community Connect offers a number of services for guests to be able to access in the same place.
Services include a hot meal, warrant resolution and driver diversion, hair trims, MN birth certificates, vaccines/shots/testing, STI testing, free coats and other winter apparel, and each guest attending receives a bag full of resources and supplies. There will also be over 20 other organizations tabling both indoors and outdoors at this event to provide even more resources to everyone that attends this event.
