Lions  Clubs set up gift trees
The Lions Clubs in Bend and Redmond have gift giving trees ready for community donations to serve less fortunate children this Christmas.
If you know of a child in need, go to Big Country RV and fill out a Lions’ gift request tag. The tags will describe the children and their gift requests. The Lions gift giving trees are located at both Big Country RV stores, in Bend on Highway 97 across from Home Depot and in Redmond on Highway 97 next to the Dollar Store.
Those who want to donate a gift select a tag off of the Lions gift giving trees, purchase the gift, wrap it and return it to the tree before Dec. 20. Checker Cab Company in Bend and Redmond will deliver the gifts.
The Lions and Meals on Wheels will also have a special gift-giving tree at the same Big Country RV stores to remember seniors and give them holiday joy this season. Cash donations are also appreciated and the Lions Club will do the shopping.

Drop off canned food at the library
Redmond Public Library is serving as a drop-off location for the St. Vincent de Paul food bank. Donations of nonperishable food will be accepted through Dec. 31, during regular library hours.
