Bonaventure at Keizer Station, a senior living community, will be holding a Stuff the Bus Toy Drive event, along with a toy and food drive for the first half of December. 

The senior living community is inviting the public to help spread the Christmas cheer this December. Bonaventure at Keizer Station will be holding a food drive and a toy drive in their community from Sunday, Dec. 1, to Sunday, Dec. 15. Residents of the Keizer community are encouraged to help out those in need by bringing in donations of unwrapped, unopened toys, as well as non-perishable food items. 

The public can stop by Bonaventure, at 5525 McLeod Lane N.E. in Keizer, any time between 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. to drop off their donations. The toys will be donated to Doernbechers, via Spirit Mountain Casino and non-perishable food will be donated St. Edward Church, each of which to distribute the items to area families in need. 

Bonaventure at Keizer Station is also holding a special “Stuff the Bus” event on Friday, Dec. 6 between noon and 2 p.m. at the Safeway on 4990 River Rd N. This event is also open to the public and will feature the senior living community’s bus, which will be loaded with donations that will be ready to help families. This event will help their efforts to bring Christmas cheer to those in need in the Keizer community. 

“Our toy and food drive, along with our Stuff the Bus event, is really going to help out a lot of area families this Christmas season,” said Bonaventure at Keizer Station’s executive director, Luis Callazo. “We’re excited to give back to the community that has supported us so strongly. It’s a pleasure to be able to bring cheer to kids through the gift of toys, as well as providing much needed food. We hope that you’ll join us in giving back.” 

Bring any donations (unwrapped and unopened toys, non-perishable food) to the community’s reception desk at the front entrance.
