IRON MOUNTAIN (November 9 2018)—  UPward Talent Council Michigan Works! participated in two local Community Connect events in early November. These free events are aimed at bringing together local service providers and agencies to connect with community members and empower participants with valuable information and resources. The event also gives local agencies the chance to network and educate each other on services they provide. At the end of the event, participants were able to shop for household essentials and cold-weather items. 158 people attended the Iron County event, and 142 attended the Dickinson County event. Thank you to the organizers of the event and all local agencies for participating!
