Nonprofit Collects Gifts for 500 Children in Need this Holiday Season

It started as a simple idea: making sure that no child goes without a present on Christmas. That simple idea, called “The Giving Tree,” turned into a community-wide effort in Bend last year.

To donate, you can visit many different locations around Bend including Custom Labor and Staffing Solutions, Inc., Food4Less, GoodYear and Applebee’s. Or you can email Heather Enger at payitforwardbend@gmail.com and she will come to you!

Central Oregon Daily’s Anyssa Bohanan caught up with the creator of the Giving Tree for an update on this year’s efforts.
