Bend Local Causes
I love living in Bend. And I often tell the story about how I thought it would be a great idea to live in a different city once my daughter graduated from high school, but I have come to realize I cannot find all of the activities, festivals and fun close by. And I love the way my Bend is growing up.
Being a part of this wonderful community also brings the awareness of Bend's challenges. Every city has them, and every city has solutions. We have a special history and also community challenges as we grow. I love finding those who want to discuss and action up on possible solutions. Let's do this. We have amazing non-profits that work hard at bridging some of our challenges. Here are a few of my very favorites.
Partners in Care
KOR Community Land Trust
Casa of Central Oregon
SMART Reading Program
The Giving Plate
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Oregon
If you have some time, give it some thought. And a little action in building the community with heart.
