HOP UP AND HELP OUT

We need at least 8,000 stuffed eggs for 400+ community children we expect at this year’s Easter Egg Festival on April 11 from 9:30-11:00 a.m. on the West Capitol Grounds!

Here’s how you can help!

Donations

  1. Donate individually wrapped nut-free candy and empty plastic eggs in the bunny barrels outside the Sanctuary foyer, Wesley Hall, main office, and preschool hallway. Collection dates are March 1-early April. We are in more need of candy and trinkets than empty Easter eggs. Please make sure the candy is nut-free and small enough to fit inside an Easter egg. (Starbursts, skittles, and laffy taffy are some good examples.)
  2. Send egg supplies directly to the church! Amazon wish list coming soon.
  3. Donate money during the offering or online and note “Egg Festival Supplies.”

Volunteer at the Egg Festival
Sign up online for a shift (or more). From greeters to egg organizers, we have a job for you.

Signup coming soon!

Egg Festival Preparation
Stuff eggs at home or in your Sunday School class or small group meeting. Volunteers take home a prepped bin of about 500 empty eggs, candy, toy trinkets, AND tape to hold the eggs together. If you would like to help with this, please contact Chloe Conner at chloe@fumcaustin.org.

Prayers
Pray for the families who will attend and the volunteers serving to share God’s love.

Please email children@fumcaustin.org if you have any questions. Thank you for your donations!
