The Office of Faith Events invites every family to make an Easter basket that will be delivered to a soup kitchen/shelter in the Norwich Diocese for children and families who would not otherwise receive an Easter Basket.
You can make a large family basket, small individual baskets or small individual buckets. You fill up the basket or bucket with Easter treats (small toys, candy, etc.) and wrap it in a cellophane bag (available 2 for $1- at the Dollar Tree) and drop it off at a designated place in your parish or at the Bishop Flanagan Ministry Center, 199 Broadway, Norwich, CT.
It would be nice to include a homemade Easter card from your family to theirs if you are comfortable with that.
Some safety details…*make sure all candy is packaged- big or small- no loose candy please, *no candy with nuts or peanut butter for allergy reasons.
Please have all completed baskets delivered by March 23rd so we can get them to the soup kitchen/shelter and they will be given to the families/children before Easter.
