We are making Easter Baskets for Foster Children!

  • Apr 1, 2012 · 2:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hi Everyone.  For those of us who previously RSVPd for April 8, I just changed the date to April 1 because I created the event last year and did not realize this year Easter Sunday is on the 8th.  Please let me know if you can still make it.  We will still need a lot of donations of stuffed animales, Easter Baskets, plastic grass, ribbons, candies, coloring books, etc.  WE CAN DO IT!  Time will be going pretty fast but seeing how this pulled together like a miracle last year, we can do it again!  I will personnlgy deliver the baskets on the following Monday to Polinski Center for foster children to the Director and you are welcome to come too.

During the days before we make the baskets, feel free to drop off donations at the address provided.  This is the time to go to Vintage shops and buy cute things.  Please wash all stuffed animal toys so everything is clean and nice.

On Sunday, April 1, bring your family, friends and neighbors and help us put together baskets.  I wil keep you posted to let you know if we don't have enough items.

Bring stuffed Easter Bunnies or other cute stuffed animals (Must be in very good condition). Bring Easter type Baskets. We will be assembling as many as we can make. If you have the artificial grass, ribbons, etc.. bags of individual wrapped candies, etc.
We will have fun getting to know each other and making some nice baskets for children who have been through a lot and are missing their families. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. If you can contact others to donate items, that would be great too. If you need me to pick anything up from you, please let me know.

Go to the front door entrance.

    Please keep in mind that we can add all kinds of different goodies in the baskets. Look around your house for things you can give away: Kids Video tape movies, CDS, coloring books and crayons, Girls barrets and hair ribbons, nail polish, pencils, notebooks, markers, etc. etc. Be creative with what you can also donate.
