A caring group of residents along with Anderson Christian Church decided to give back to children in need by making over a hundred Easter baskets for those children who won’t be getting one this year.

Angela Fields, a member of the church and one of the organizers, explained that the church a number of community members wanted to find a way to bring joy for children in need this Easter.  Reaching out to the family resource centers at the schools in the county, they learned that around 240 children receive food for the weekend through programs like the Backpack Buddies.

They also learned that one resident was already making Easter baskets for half of the children, and so they decided to make the other half.  Reaching out to the community and organizations, donations poured in for the baskets. “The community really has been a big help, and they have been very gracious to give us donations or money to buy the items,” Angela said.

Donna Warmouth, a volunteer helping to put together the baskets, was incredibly grateful for all the help the community provided to put a smile on the children’s faces for Easter.  “The community has given us awesome donations,” she said.

The baskets were distributed to the schools on Wednesday, just in time for the upcoming Easter weekend. “A lot of children are going to be happy,” Angela said.
