We are very fortunate to live in such a caring
community. Thanks to people and
organizations within our community, we are able to assist a few families in
need during the Christmas holiday. If
you feel your family could benefit from receiving a few gifts for your
children, please let me know as soon as possible. Unfortunately we usually end up with more
families needing assistance than resources available. Therefore, those who contact me first will be
put on the top of the list. Please
remember that there are usually additional resources available during the
holidays through the Salvation Army, United Way, St. Edwards Church and
probably many other churches in Keizer as well.
However, I suggest those contacts be made in October or early November
as they will also have needs exceeding the resources available.
Deadlines given to me this year are early, so I will need to
provide names and gift ideas for Christmas assistance by Monday, OCTOBER 17th
the very latest. You must be a
Keizer resident to receive the assistance per the Keizer
organizations who are making this happen.
The first 10 families to contact me will receive assistance as that is
the max number of families they are able to help per school.
If you are a parent or community member that would like to
help a family in need during the Christmas holiday, we will be having an “adopt
a family” program as well. Families in
need, as well as families helping, will all remain anonymous.
I will be the contact for those needing assistance as well
as those wanting to provide assistance.
