Support Habitat for Humanity reStore, Help Them Get a new Paint Job: The folks at the Bend Habitat for Humanity are great folks.

While all the non-profits that are participating are great organizations, we have a special place in our heart for Habitat for Humanity, having experienced the work they do and seen the joy of home ownership first hand.
