Klosets Helps Our Students

Keizer Klosets provided extra food for our students this year! It was a great program to work with and a huge help for kids and families.

Amazing Program

Weddle Elementary has been an amazing resource for our families. They have supported our students with snacks, clothes and many more resources needed. Please support The Kloset so they can continue supporting our students/schools.
