It’s been a long time coming, and now military veterans have one place they can go for all kinds of help. The grand opening of the Bend Veterans Center is Friday, and U.S. Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon and many other officials will be on hand for the opening ceremony. "The soldiers from Central Oregon have given a lot to us, and with this dedication, we're making sure that the people see that the community is stepping up to try to give a lot to them." Wyden says it's a "one-stop-shop" that will offer assistance for many issues that come with a vet returning from combat, as well and general information. Wyden adds that there are many, many dedicated members of the community that worked tirelessly to make the center a reality and he wants to recognize them at the ceremony. The open house is Friday at 10:30 a.m. at the new center on Northeast Forbes Road.

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:
