Easter Baskets for Precious Peeps
April 7 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pmFree
A wonderful way to experience tech free family time is to work together in service to those in need. There are several advocacy organizations that work with children in crisis (Norwalk Dept. of Children and Families, Breakthrough Options, Thorpe Family Residence). Why not take on this project as a family to provide an Easter Basket for these children in crisis who are precious peeps. This is an at home family activity organized by St. Aloysius.
Each family is asked to use a 12″ in diameter Easter Basket and fill it with the following items. Wrap it in cellophane and tie it with a festive ribbon. Then, bring your basket to the Tudor House (30 Maple Street) at St. Aloysius Catholic Church on Sunday, April 7 between the hours of 9am – 6pm.
