Oh, Baby! It’s Cold Outside!


For the next two months, you can make a donation of clothing (gently used or new), blankets, diapers or hygiene items to help keep the babies and toddlers of our community warm and comfortable. All donations collected by Soroptimist International (SI) of Bend are distributed by Deschutes County Department of Human Services to local families in need who cannot afford basic baby care.

Collection baskets are placed citywide, making it easy to participate. Drop off unwrapped items at the convenient locations listed below. With the cooperation of local businesses, retirement homes and a generous community, we make it a priority to ensure our little ones will be warm and their families know that our community cares for their well being. (Please note: used car seats cannot be accepted.)
