As the weather gets warmer more people tend to head to the downtown Bend area, and some of those people are panhandlers. Chuck Arnold with the Downtown Bend Business Association says they have a campaign called "Say No to Panhandlers" and they hope to expand that idea beyond downtown to the greater Bend area: “The experts have told us that about 90% of the people who are asking for change, about 90% of that money is going for drugs and alcohol and that was astonishing to me. I know people are good hearted in this community; I know they are generous here, and I think it's important if they want to be generous, to resist to not to give out food and or money to somebody who's on a corner." Arnold says they are also working on card to give to pan-handlers that lists the social service programs that can assist them.
