We did our Easter Outreach a little differently. Instead of providing Easter baskets to the kids, we suprised 24 families who we know really needed it with Easter Meals – ham or brisket, bread, potato salad, veggies, dessert, the all-important marshmellow peeps, etc. We also gave the 80 or so kids from these families little goodie bags filled with candy and fun little items. Here’s what the typical family received:
We got everything delivered on Friday. Most of the kids weren’t home yet, so I didn’t get many pictures of happy kids. But the moms were incredibly grateful, so that was awesome. Here’s Mariela and her sibling and cousins, the last family I delivered to on Friday. The kids had just returned home from school, so I got to see their happy faces.
Thanks so much to everyone who gave and/or shopped for groceries. We’ll do this again next year for sure.
