+Donate products or services from your business
What business are you in? What kinds of skills do you have? What product do you make?

Chances are your business does something or makes something that could be of use to Partners In Care. For example, the E2Solar Company, located in NE Bend, donated solar energy panels to Partners In Care in late 2012. Not only did they donate the panels, but also delivered, installed and tested them at no cost. The installation was done on #GivingTuesday – a day when companies and individuals “give back” to their communities. Efforts to inform the media of this gift resulted in local television coverage that day. The company president appeared on camera to share what was being installed and why this gift, valued at $13,000, was important to them. A true win-win community partnership.

+Do business with our Community Partners
Partners In Care values its relationships with a variety of community partners. Organizations such as Bend Memorial Clinic and St. Charles Health System refer patients for home health and hospice services. Other companies, like REgroup Thrift Store, have cause-related marketing agreements with Partners In Care. And nonprofit organizations, such as The Bloom Project, interface with Partners In Care in unique ways that benefit our patients and families directly. We hope you will support these organizations with your own business. See our Community Partners page for a complete listing and links to their websites.
