Giving’s down, while the need is up. The United Way of Deschutes County is running behind the goal they've set. The donations are needed to help kids, families and seniors in Central Oregon. People who have been generous in the past, are actually needing help now. “It’s obvious to folks, most everybody’s had someone close to them that is suffering.” United Way Executive Director Ken Wilhelm says many people coming in to the Bend Community Center for meals say they've never had to ask for help before: “It’s everything, it’s families, single parent household. One of the groups that I’m a little more concerned about it is the senior population because they’re living on fixed incomes and they many not have as many resources to call upon as maybe some of the younger folks do.” $740,000; that's the campaign goal of the United Way of Deschutes County. Wilhelm says they are currently behind pace by about $30,000.
