It's almost Easter, time for Easter egg hunts and getting a basket filled with colored eggs, candy and toys. For the less fortunate, this often does not happen. But with our help, it can!
The homeless shelter we are giving to is in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn. It is one that does not have any outreach, so we are it. There are 124 children and 10 infants in this shelter. We can purchase beautiful pre-made Easter baskets for 15-20 dollars each at Duane Reade and CVS, which are filled with candy and toys, wrapped in cellophane. And stuffed animals (bunnies) for the babies.

Many donations are made during Christmas to the homeless children, but are forgotten during a
holiday such as Easter.

Anything you can donate will be greatly appreciated! The deadline for donating is April 9th, and the Easter baskets will be delivered to the shelter on Tuesday, April 11th.

Thank you all in advance for your generosity.

Happy Spring!!!

We did it! 124 Easter Baskets for the children, plus solid chocolate bunnies for the teens were delivered to the homeless shelter yesterday afternoon. Without all of your generous donations, we could not have done this. Thank you to my friends and family who are always there to give back. You are all amazing. Happy Holidays!
