People Helping People In Keizer

Keizer Community Foundation has worked for years to identify and then fill Keizer’s needs. The food bank has provided for the needs of local people for many years. More recently, the community discovered that students at Keizer’s middle and high schoo Keep Readingls needed some assistance with regard to school supplies, nutritional snacks and even clean clothing. Keizer Community Foundation got to work setting up a network to help. First they made people aware of the need, then they solicited donations and a way to collect them, and finally they set up safe spaces in the schools where students can ‘shop’ for their needs at no cost. That’s putting Keizer’s peoples’ needs first! Way to go Keizer Community Foundation!

Community Partnership

Not only does the Keizer Foundation supply basic needs to the local schools they also support other non-profits in Keizer to serve other needs. During these uncertain times, they continue to adapt and create new ways to continue to serve their community.
