Easter Basket Items Collection

Once again, WINGS (previously the Women’s Guild) will be making Easter Giving Baskets for local charities: Gift of Grace, Hope Atlanta, The Place, Nicholas House and Cheryl’s Lunches of Love. 

Last year we donated 627 baskets to these charities!  We would like to do the same this year! 

We really need your support by donating the following new items:

Easter buckets
Easter basket grass
Chocolate bunnies
Small/medium stuffed animals
Religious books
Religious coloring/activity books
Crayons (preferably 16 or 24 count)
Bags of individually wrapped candy

There are baskets with item reminder crosses on the center table of the church narthex as well as examples of items needed. A bin will be placed just inside the Parish Life Center (PLC) to collect the donations.  All donations are due by Friday, March 15th.  Thank you for your support!

Delivery of baskets is quite a process and sometimes the woven baskets get broken.  In an effort to prevent this, we are asking for Easter buckets this year (commonly found at Dollar Tree and Walmart). Also, several of the charities hand out the baskets at a party instead of individually delivering them, so it is important that the baskets be similar in size and content. Please take note of the small/medium size description for the stuffed animals, and 16/24 count box of the crayons.
