We raise funds to distribute Easter baskets to over 300 local children in need. All are welcome.
Coordinator: Margaret Steadman
Our ministry provides Easter baskets to over 300 local children. We conduct fundraising by:
(1) requesting donations of individually wrapped Easter candies and small toys and
(2) selling $5.00 sponsorships to individuals and families who will have their names posted on our donations boards displayed in each church in our parish.
Our goal is to grow this event to include some additional activities for the children and their parents. Last year we had a visit from the Easter Bunny. We meet in January or February to plan the event and baskets are distributed the weekend before Easter. Additional volunteers are needed to assist with fundraising and to help with expanding the program to include additional activities.
