The Economic Development for Central Oregon (EDCO) organization has started a video series titled, “Good News, Too,” which highlights local businesses across the Central Oregon region that are pivoting, expanding, providing community support, hiring displaced workers, and more.
The most current video is about Oregon Spirit Distillers, one of only four distilleries in the state certified to mass produce medical grade hand sanitizer. They’re providing it free to the public, for sale in larger quantities, as well as being a major supplier for the state. They have also added shifts, staff, and hired many previously laid-off Deschutes Brewery workers.
“BendBroadband worked with EDCO by sponsoring this video to help the community by seeing what good things are happening out there to take people’s mind off of the despair,” said Nicole Lewis, associate manager—Field Marketing. “I felt compelled to share this because it truly shows how our local businesses and communities are making the best of things and contributing where they can,” said Nicole.
