Tough economic times means non-profits need to be creative in their fundraising. Bend’s Community Center has designed a very easy way for you to help the homeless, hungry and less fortunate. BCC Executive Director Taffy Gleeson says they have a new brochure that gives you options: "We developed a sponsorship program where people can read what $25 a month will actually do. And then they can pick and choose where they want their money to go. We have a number of programs that help the homeless and the needy. But some people are drawn to buying food for the homeless; others want to buy diapers for the kids or clothing or showers or something like that." Gleeson say a donation of $25 really can do a lot for someone in need.  And, if you want to donate on a regular basis, there is a way to do that, plus you will have a record of your donations at the end of the year.  You can go to the Bend Community Center website to download the brochure, or stop by the facility on northeast Fifth Street.
