With our weather turning much colder, it's more important than ever, the homeless get help. Taffy Gleason, Executive Director of the Bend Community Center says during their supply drive, they got lots of clothes and blankets, but no tents: “We're completely out of tents. We serve dinners on Sundays and that's normally when we give out tents. And with winter coming. I had three people didn't have tents. I had one woman who is wrapping herself in sleeping bag and tarps because there are no tents left.” Gleason estimates there are about 3500 hundred homeless people in the Bend area, including 1200 students. Gleason was the guest on the KBND Morning Show "Your Town" Monday.
