There are children in crisis right here in our community that need your help. This February, KEZI 9 News is joining forces with other community members to Share the Love.
We are gathering cash donations, clothing and toys for kids in need. All items will be given to kids in need through the Bags of Love program. Helping to end neglect and abuse for kids in Oregon.
You can drop off new or gently used items to one of the following locations through March 2, 2018.
