A group of University of Oregon students will begin a three day immersion study here in Bend on December 10th; which is the beginning of their normal winter break time. They want to investigate homelessness and poverty. Laura gGangaard with the U of O Service Learning Program says about eight students will do everything from serving meals to interviewing homeless and out of worker people. "Basically just looking at the difference faces of poverty in bend. What it looks like compared to here; different climate, different environment. And they'll be doing some service at various shelters around town; the Bethlehem Inn, the [Bend] Community Center. They’ll be talking with representatives at the economic development council and living options for teens. And then doing some other activities around their service issues as well." Grangaard says hopefully the trip will inspire a lifetime of community service. KBND will keep up with the students to get their impression on the homeless problems in bend and we will report to you their findings next week
