Donate to COVO
We are in urgent need of 1lb cans of Propane!
Make a difference in a life.
The services that COVO offers are possible through the support and generosity of the Central Oregon community. Our mission always has been – and always will be – to help Veterans and their families and those who are homeless or at-risk of becoming homeless. Please help us by donating. Every dollar helps us support our services for Veterans, their families and others in need.
More about Donations
Donations are accepted at our facility, located at 61510 S. Hwy 97, Suite 100, Bend, OR 97702, from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday at COVO’s Outreach door. Our Outreach reception area remodel continues so we are still serving our clients and donors at the door and under the canopy outside to ensure social distancing. If you are able to do so we ask you wear a mask (if you need one we have one for you) and we have hand sanitizer available at the door. We are limiting what donations we can receive, though, because of sanitization needs with clothing, bedding and other cloth items. You are welcome to give us a call (541-383-2793) or email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions before you bring in donations.
We accept donations of all kinds at our facility and our volunteer staff will be happy to assist you. Unfortunately, at this time we do not have a pick-up program. You can find our list of items needed for Veterans and others on our Outreach page. We hope you’ll help us out by making sure donations are clean and in serviceable condition.
Fuel Card Donations
One of our most requested items are gas (fuel) cards. Many of our clients do have a vehicle, and while they’re trying to get to work, lack of fuel can be a very real obstacle. $20 fuel cards purchased from a local station can help keep a person gainfully employed and able to travel to necessary services.
Drives and Group Fundraising
Are you considering a clothing drive or other group event? If so, reach out to COVO’s Executive Officer directly. With many agencies interested in assisting our client population, we like to coordinate what types of items are being gathered to make sure your agency does not put in tremendous effort that is duplicated by others. We help you focus on a specific need and provide information to help maximize your results. Let’s partner!
Donate through Amazon.
If you shop on Amazon, it’s easy to sign up for Amazon Smile. Choose Central Oregon Veterans Outreach as your charity and the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to COVO.
