If you’re looking for a volunteer opportunity, we have an option for you.
The Community Shower Truck is a local ministry offering showers to the homeless in Central Oregon.
About 100 people use the service every week at locations in Bend and Redmond.
But the organization is losing drivers and has cut back on the number of days they are able to help.
It seems like a basic act, but one that is very important to the health of a vulnerable population.
“There’s always been a need for hygiene with all the homeless, with that we offer them the cleanliness they need to avoid infections,” said Tom Stutheit, president of the Community Shower Truck.
No special permits are needed to drive, and they work in volunteer groups of three.
