At Lay It Out Events, we are dedicated to spreading awareness to nonprofits and involving the entire community.

In the past 10 years, LIOE has donated over $225,000 to local charities and nonprofits.

COVO provides hope and help to homeless Veterans and their families, Veterans struggling to keep their lives safe and stable, and the homeless community in Central Oregon. On average each month over 400 people, Veterans and non-Veterans, turn to COVO for help and advocacy. COVO assists Veterans and their families with emergency, transitional and low-income housing, and serves Veterans and non-Veterans who are homeless at the COVO Community Outreach Center and by weekly homeless camp visits and street outreach. Through the generosity of the community, COVO supplies our homeless neighbors with survival equipment – such as tents, tarps, sleeping bags, propane – food and basic needs items – toiletries, socks, coats, clothes, and more – to help them be as secure and healthy as possible when living without a safe, stable place to call home. COVO is a community 501 c3 non-profit serving Deschutes, Crook and Jefferson counties since 2005.
