To the Editor:
A heart-felt thank you to everyone who helped make the Keizer Chamber Foundation’s Gift Basket Program successful.
One hundred twenty four families had food, clothing and toys because of your generosity. I wish there was room to name all the help we received to make this program a success. I hope you felt the spirit of Christmas knowing your generosity brought Christmas into the eyes and hearts of 387 children and their families this year.
I make it a point to deliver a box or two at the completion of our program. We receive paychecks of the heart; seeing the joy in a child’s eyes when we bring a brand new bicycle, a new coat, food and a friendly smile. I wish you could have witnessed the three year old I visited. Ah, the joy!
The Keizer Chamber of Commerce Foundation and the women of Keizer Network of Women (KNOW) are proud to be a part of the Keizer community. We get bigger and better every year and it’s only because of you! Thank you!
