Community Connect Day is coming up on Saturday, Nov. 21 at the Central School Gym (811 Stanley St.) from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Nelson Committee on Homelessness hosts this marketplace of free resources, activities and goods for all those struggling to make ends meet in our community a day that recognizes we can take a community approach to help take care of one another in Nelson.

Last year over 300 guests visited the school, making it the largest attendance ever. Over 29 booths with over 70 community and professional service providers, plus over 40 other volunteers all pitched in to provide health, information, clothing, food and services to individuals and families in the Nelson area that were finding it hard to make ends meet.

If you would like to volunteer, call 250-352-6011, ext. 19 or email Registered or certified body workers are still needed too.
