E BUNNY isn’t asking for money. Just one basket. Or a few. Or a few hours help, to make the 2013 Easter Basket give-a-way program a success.
Caring individuals, organizations, businesses, schools and social-service leaders have helped bring thousands of Easter baskets to homeless and underprivileged children for 23 years. Thanks to the community outreach effort, in Vegas, North Las Vegas and Henderson, nearly 2,800 children got baskets and a visit from the Easter Bunny in 2012!
Recipients of last year’s give-away included Las Vegas City Mission, Las Vegas Rescue Mission, Casa De Luz, Family Promise, Straight from the Streets, Clark County Social Services, Children’s Hospital of Nevada (UMC), State of Nevada Family Services, Safe House and HELP of Southern Nevada.
As homelessness and poverty increases, this tradition brings hope and joy to ever more kids and their families each year. While it’s not a religious program, E BUNNY brings the real meaning of Easter to children in need, letting them know others in our community care.
“It’s into an Easter tradition, first in Detroit, now here in Vegas” explained Barbara Kenig, coordinator and founder of E BUNNY. “Every year wonderful people volunteer time and donate Easter baskets to make this an extraordinary effort. Parents have told me they have used E BUNNY as an example, teaching their kids the spirit of giving. It’s heartwarming. And, fun.”
E BUNNY organizers are again asking local communities to take part in 2013. Here’s how:
1. Purchase an Easter Basket by March 21st , then deliver it to at an E BUNNY dropoff, to distribute.
2. Inspire others! Get your kids, family, friends and neighbors involved.
3. Hold an Easter Basket Drive in your school, church, social group or at your business.
4. Sponsor E BUNNY by holding employee basket drives.
E BUNNY is seeking donations of pre-packaged Easter Baskets, the one you see at any grocery, drugstore, or retail store. Although we love handmade baskets, store purchased baskets are requested, since they’re built to stay intact during handling and travel. Monetary contributions are not accepted; only baskets that will be delivered to the kids!
