HERMISTON — A cornucopia of resources — including giveaways, services and information — is available during the annual Project Community Connect & Veteran Stand Down.
The free event, which is designed for veterans, as well as those who are homeless or at risk of being homeless, is Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Hermiston Community Center, 415 S. Highway 395. Transportation is available to and from the event. Buses will depart at 9 a.m. and 10:15 a.m. from the Pendleton Salvation Army office (not the thrift store), 150 S.E. Emigrant Ave. Return trips will leave from the Hermiston Community Center at 1 p.m. and 2:15 p.m.
