Taking the KIDS Center Staff Stand Up Paddleboarding
Like most businesses, we get calls every day from non-profits and other organizations looking for donations and support. Most folks know about our work to support the Bend Paddle Trail Alliance (see Pickin’ & Paddlin’) and other environmental organizations like the Deschutes River Conservancy, the Upper Deschutes Watershed Council, and the Oregon Natural Desert Association.
We got a call recently from the KIDS Center. The staff wanted to go out stand up paddleboarding as a release from their stressful days working with abused children. We decided to hook them up, as we really believe in the work that they do. The are a prevention and diagnostic service, advocating for children, and providing therapeutic services for kids and their families. Learn more about the KIDS Center here.
Last Friday we took almost the whole KIDS Center staff out on the water and had a blast, and it looks like they did too!
