Easter Egg Donations Found a Good Home

Easter Egg Donations Found a Good Home

Thank you to everyone who donated Easter eggs, candy, toys, and time to prepare for the Easter Egg Festival this year. Although we were disappointed this event was cancelled, we were able to put the candy eggs to good use! Your egg donations went to marginalized children and families at Posada Esperanza, SAFE Alliance, Foster Village, Helping Hand Home, and the Settlement Home for Children. We are so grateful for the opportunity to serve these families and appreciate your support in being able to make it happen. Happy Easter from the Children’s Ministry!
