Vendor & Volunteer Information

Community Connect Vendor Information

Community Connect is a county-wide event providing free, same-day services for individuals who have limited resources.  It is not a health or information fair-each vendor provides actual services that are usually offered in the office or on-line.

We are looking for vendors in the following categories:

  • Employment and Education Services
  • Financial Assistance and Programs
  • Government Assistance
  • Veterans Services
  • Health Screenings
  • Housing Information
  • Legal Advice
  • Parenting Resources
  • Re-entry Services
  • Haircuts

Vendor set-up will take place from 3-6 pm on Wednesday, October 2.  We prefer you set up the evening before, but there is an optional setup time from 7:30-8:30 am on Thursday. All vendors need to be set up and in place no later than 8:30 am on the day of the event, to ensure we are in place and ready to receive guests promptly at 9 am. Please also plan to stay onsite until 2:30 pm for wrap up with our guests.

One table and two chairs will be provided for each vendor.  If you need additional resources (e.g. electricity, more tables and chairs) please indicate your request on the vendor sign-up form. You may wish to provide your own extension cords and/or power-strips if necessary.
