(SANDUSKY) — Nearly 350 residents attended this year’s annual Project Connect event held October 1 at the Countryside Free Methodist Church in Sandusky. The event is sponsored by the Sanilac County Project Connect Committee, Sanilac County United Way, Sanilac County Community Mental Health, Sanilac County Health Department, Great Start Collaborative and Michigan Coalition Against Homelessness.

In addition to the information on community resources, there were mini workshops, free soup and sandwich lunches, flu shots, haircuts, a food truck distribution, hygiene kits, quilts, healthy recipes, books, and free child care. Sanilac Transportation also offered free transportation to and from the event.
