The SMART Central Area team implements SMART programs, and raises funds to support SMART in Central Oregon. In 2015-2016 in SMART’s Central Area, we served 651 PreK through third-grade children with the help of 317 local volunteers. We are focused on recruiting more volunteers and establishing strong financial support among our communities to ensure we can continue this important work of empowering local children through reading.
SMART Business Partners are local businesses that support SMART through financial contributions and employee volunteerism. For a list of our Central Area Business Partners, click here ›.
Being an active member of our community is important to SMART. We are a proud member of the Bend Chamber of Commerce.
