Overview of our Program
After the Easter season closed out in 2015, Walmart donated a large number of baskets, grass, eggs, and die kits to us. We began thinking about what we could do with all these goodies to give back to those in need in the community.
That next year, 2016, we launched our Easter Eggstra program! Each year since we’ve provided families in need with the ability to provide a memorable Easter for their children!
Our 2022 Easter Eggstra
On April 9th, we provided 71 children with Easter goodies!
Easter buckets were filled with a chocolate bunny, jelly beans, and a sleeve of plastic Easter eggs. Parents were then able to pick other gift items to pair with the buckets. The pictures below show all the wonderful things made available to make Easter special for these children!
These 71 children belonged to a total of 28 families. Each family received a food box, and for the first time ever, we were able to provide a dozen fresh eggs, fresh apples and potatoes, a variety of canned goods, paper products, and a canned ham.
