Holliston Newcomers Club Easter Basket Project with the Food Pantry Update:

This was the Holliston Newcomers Club 6th year coordinating with the Food Pantry to fill requests for Easter Baskets. The Newcomers Club received Easter Basket requests for children ranging from just a few months to teenagers. The volunteers from the Newcomers Club and support from the community were able to initially fulfill 71 requests! 

Melissa Marien and the volunteers then took extra initiative to make certain to have a few extra Easter baskets in case of last minute signs ups, which came in handy! The Food Pantry contacted the Newcomers Club to help cover a few more last minute sign ups.  With the outpouring from our wonderful volunteers, the Newcomers Club was able to donate even more Easter baskets.   The new total came to 80 requests!

This event would not have been able to take place without the wonderful support of the community. Families, individuals, Girl Scouts, churches, businesses and local organizations participated in making Easter even better for so many deserving children of all ages!  Individuals got creative and some initiated raffles to collect donations to cover the Easter Baskets.  Our volunteers went above and beyond and put so much love and thought into each donation! Thank you for taking on the role of the Easter Bunny!

Families picked up their baskets last week at the Food Pantry to take home for children to find on Easter morning.    Thank you all!
