An estimated 900 homeless students are here in the Bend La Pine, Redmond and Sisters School Districts and right now you can help those students. The First Presbyterian Church in Bend just launched a special fund raising campaign to give those homeless students things like soap, shampoo and toothpaste. Organizer Helen Smith says about three years ago her group decided to shift money that was going to far-away missions to help people right here in our community. "You know I can't imagine, I can think back to my high school days and how tough it must be to be homeless and still stay in school and I just take my hat off to these kids.” The fundraiser, called "Kits for Kids" also involved a hand-sown bag filled with the basic hygiene items. If you'd like to help you can donate fabric for the bags or hygiene items. To get a list you can contact Helen Smith at hsmith@bendcable.com. Last year they gave out 1000 bags.
