The ribbon cutting for the new home of the Redmond branch of the Boys and Girls Club of Central Oregon brought smiles and cheers.  Executive Director Lisa Maxwell says it took about 18 months for the building to be renovated, but already kids are excited and thrilled to have a much larger space to play and learn.  “And the outdoor area will be so much better as we move forward. They'll just have a lot more room to be outside and get active. So I think they're all so excited. And our membership was dropping because we were over next to Evergreen Elementary, which closed down. So it's fun to be able to have kids have better access to the club. That's the whole point."  Maxwell says the entire community helped raise funds to renovate the building by either donating money, supplies or their time to make it happen.  She says since they have a huge piece of property at the back, for the next phase they hope to raise more funds to build a gym for the kids.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
