NEWPORT — This year’s Project Homeless Connect event, scheduled for Friday, Oct. 3, at the Church of the Nazarene, will offer a special fund honoring a Newport girl who asked her parents and other family members to donate money to the needy that they planned to spend for gifts on her 10th birthday.

“Following her spirit of giving,” said county Commissioner Bill Hall, “we’re going to launch the Ariel Flowers Fund this year by matching every dollar pledged to it. The fund will be used to buy practical things like food, clothing and tents for the people attending this year’s event.”
