Give Guide a Great Success for Area Vets

Thanks to a number of local businesses, we were able to donate a bundle to COVO.

Thanks, y'all!

For the ninth consecutive year, the Source successfully coordinated with local businesses in an effort to give back to the community during the holiday season via our Give Guide. We handed this year's beneficiary, Central Oregon Veteran's Outreach, a check for $5,600—the most we've ever raised! COVO is a Bend nonprofit that distributes food, clothing and other necessities like dental work and disability services to homeless veterans. With the help of area vendors who donated goods and services to our charity auction, COVO was able to use all 100 percent of the proceeds for continued outreach and assistance. If you’re not familiar with COVO, check them out online, they’re doing good work here in Central Oregon. And if you missed out on the auction, don’t fret, you can still lend our veterans a hand. COVO is always happy to accept volunteers as well as donations.
