LAST MINUTE PROJECT I COULD USE YOUR HELP WITH:
I am seeking about 30-40 filled Easter baskets. Unisex themed would be ideal. These will be for Men & Women over the age of 18.
On Saturday, April 3, 2021, there are going to be over 500+ Easter meals prepared and delivered throughout the Merrimack Valley. Veterans and their families in Haverhill are being treated to free Easter meals; those will be prepared and delivered by VFWLorrainePost29. Operation Warming Hearts is providing free Easter dinners for the Greater Newburyport community. Both meals will be happening simultaneously out of two different locations.
However, an offer was just made to donate and provide enough meals for everyone at a local shelter that focuses on substance abuse recovery, mental health services, and life skills. With this shelter, I would love to include an Easter Basket for each person at the shelter if possible. I have absolutely zero time to make any Easter baskets myself or even to go out and purchase the stuff for them.
If you would like to donate an Easter Basket please contact me or let me know in the comments and I will connect with you. We can discuss how these baskets can be safely dropped off so they can be delivered on April 3. I will need all Easter Baskets NO LATER THAN APRIL 1 2021.
Who would love to donate an Easter Basket and help make someone’s Easter Extra special? I would greatly appreciate the help and support. A lot of amazing things have been able to happen lately because of the work of a lot of amazing people – THANK YOU!!
