Easter Baskets for Children’s Hospital


Could you help?  Diamond, Evelyn and Sophia started this program three years ago.  This will be the last year for the girls.  In 2018 they, along with Pastor Liz, gave out over 100 baskets to the kids at Children’s Hospital.


We need the baskets no later than April 12.  Here are the guidelines:

          No Candy

          At least one religious item

          Mark basket for boy or girl and age group

          Age groups:

Newborn – might think about putting something in for mom or dad

                   Age 1-3

                   Age 4-6

                   Age 7 – 10

                   Age 11-14

                   Age 15 and above

Please wrap with basket paper.


Diamond, Evelyn and Sophia want to thank everyone who have made this so successful and fun.  Every year, they have had wonderful memories of certain children they met while delivering the baskets.  This will be a bitter-sweet year, as Evelyn is moving out of state, and Diamond and Sophia don’t want to continue without her.


Thank you and God’s Blessings
