Preparing Easter Baskets for Homeless and Underprivileged Children



Good Idea: Finding Easter eggs on Easter Sunday.

Bad Idea: Finding Easter eggs at Thanksgiving.

Really Good Idea: Volunteering to help assemble 350 Easter Baskets for needy children in our valley.

EASTER GREETINGS!

Acts of Kindness member, Tino Arrendondo has totally organized this event with the Las Vegas Rescue Mission. Twenty Five (25) hoppy volunteers are needed to help assemble baskets filled with an array of goodies sure to delight. The baskets will be later distributed by staff at the Las Vegas Rescue Mission to homeless and underprivileged children in our valley.

Tino, has already collected the 350 baskets needed for all the goodies. He's got oodles and oodles of plastic grass, activity books, toys, and stuffed animals that have been donated by Kohl's Department Stores.

Needed for this event: Lots of marshmallow peeps and other individual wrapped candies. Did someone say, "Chocolate Easter Bunny?" Any candy items that you could donate for this event would be greatly appreciated. Just keep in mind candy must be individually wrapped. Sorry, no home-made goodies.

Thanks so much!

Hop to see you there!

    How late will you be there? I work less than a mile away so I was thinking maybe I could drop some candy off on my lunch break.
