Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

The Rebecca Foundation is opening Bend's first diaper bank in 2018

comment

Diaper need in the U.S. affects one in three families, especially here in Central Oregon. Many families will have to choose between either purchasing diapers or food.

At this time, there are no government or state assistance programs that help struggling families purchase diapers and there are few resources for this type of aid in Bend.




The Rebecca Foundation is partnering with Pure Light Chiropractic, who has donated their office space for the distribution of diapers to those in need. Families may complete an online application at clothforall.org or stop in during working hours to complete a simple application. Diapers will be distributed that same day. Diaper Drives will take place throughout Bend to collect disposable and cloth donations.

Local businesses and individuals wishing to help collect diapers should contact Amanda La Bell at Amanda@clothforall.org or call 541-540-9442.
