People on the frontlines of trying to end poverty in Central Oregon are being celebrated. Wednesday the Partnership to End Poverty held it's annual luncheon to recognize those who have inspiring stories of trying to make a difference. Executive Director Scott Cooper says six partners were honored. One of those was Brenda Comini with the Crook County Commission on Children and Families. She runs a program called "Holiday Partnership" that brings together local groups that want to help people at Christmas time into a single registry: “Of food boxes and gifts that are distributed throughout the community and it eliminates duplication and overlap and makes sure that everyone gets served. So they actually served over 2700 different people this year, which is about 10% of the community through their holiday partnership." Others honored were the La Pine Community Kitchen, Bend Broadband, the Executive Director of Volunteer Connect and Saint Charles Medical Healthcare Systems.

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:
