Just got an SOS from the Easter Bunny. It seems that due to all those pesky COVID-19 restrictions, the fuzzy little lepus has been hamstrung in putting together Easter baskets for Dallas County abused and neglected children.
While an Easter basket may not seem like a big deal to some folks, to these kids it may be the first thing they’ve ever had that is brand new and belongs to them.
Here are a couple of ways that you can hop on board to make this project a success:
You can donate “a store-bought, pre-made, wrapped Easter basket”** for kiddos (0-18 years old) by dropping them off at CPD headquarters (7950 Elmbrook Drive) Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. until Friday, March 19.
Or, if you don’t want to go to all the hassle of going to the store and delivering the basket(s), you can always make a monetary donation. If you’re on a budget… and who isn’t… you can provide a basket for a baby for just $12. But if you want to open your heart and credit card, you can make some 13+ year-old youngster’s Easter and get her/him a basket for $20.
The bunny needs your help by Friday, March 19, to provide the baskets in time for Easter Sunday, April 4. Hop to it, please!
