(CBS Connecticut) — It was announced today that a Connecticut dental clinic that provides free services to more than 2,000 people per year is being held at the X-L Center in Hartford September 16 and 17.

Organizers of the Mission of Mercy Free Dental Clinic are looking for volunteers to help staff the event.

Former UConn men’s basketball head coach Jim Calhoun endorsed the event.

“In this chaotic month or so we have gone through in America, think about the great things where if we each could lend a hand to help another… It crosses racial lines, it crosses gender lines, to help another,” Calhoun said.
