Thank you for helping make Christmas of Change 2014 a big success! With the support of over 40 other businesses, $2,447 was raised to assist local charities who do vitally important, socially significant work. As will always be the case, 100% of the money raised will go toward making a difference right here in our community.
Last year we used the funds raised through Christmas of Change to purchase office equipment and computer monitors for CASA of Central Oregon, a nonprofit that provides a powerful voice of hope for abused and neglected children living in foster care. I am pleased to report that adequate funds were raised in December to assist two organizations, so we are hard at work now identifying those beneficiaries.
The Tree of Humanity is very grateful for the enthusiastic support shown by businesses who are generously giving back to this community. It’s our goal to continue doing all we can to make Christmas of Change an event worthy of the public’s attention. It’s our belief that successfully achieving our mission will also reflect on the overall health and vitality of downtown Bend. Hopefully we can count on your support again in 2015.
