On July 27th, dozens of volunteers assisted hundreds of homeless and low income individuals and families in Bellingham at the 4th annual Project Homeless Connect.
This year's event, held under one roof at Bellingham High School, helped connect needy people with housing and medical services, as well as clothing, food, and legal services. The free event emphasized service and hospitality toward its guests. Representatives from several City departments assisted in various roles.
Mayor Kelli Linville and County Executive Jack Louws helped out by serving lunch at the event.
"It is so wonderful to see our community band together for such an important cause," Linville said. "I am humbled by the dedication of the volunteers and service providers, and thank all of those involved."
