I joined Assistance League of Bend shortly after moving to Bend, Oregon, and it is one of the best things I've ever done! This organization is completely hands on helping many people in our community: we will provide brand new clothing to 1500 children in the Bend/LaPine School District this year, give joy and comfort to hundreds of seniors who otherwise might be forgotten through Secret Santa and holiday table decorations, teach middle school students about cooking and nutrition through after-school cooking classes, together with the Pine Tavern, provide a holiday gift and visit with Santa to foster families in the community, and make and deliver 60 - 75 hats and gowns each month to local cancer centers. Through our two major fundraisers each year, a holiday Gala and springtime Kitchen Kaleidoscope, and generous support from the community, we are able to fund all of these projects. Working with over 130 caring, interesting, and passionate women is the best way to give back to our beautiful Bend community.
