Volunteers will be helping the United Way get ready for it’s Project Homeless Connect, which is a one-day event in which people experiencing homelessness can access an array of services and resources. During Day of Service, volunteers will build hygiene kits.

“This is an amazing volunteer project and you can bring your family. And you’re putting in toothpaste, and tooth brushes, and wash clothes, and all the kind of things that we take for granted. But for someone experiencing homelessness to go home with a little kit is a really special thing,” Benero explained.
