HELP ASSEMBLE! APRIL 13th 9am- 2pm
500 Baskets in 5 hrs is the mission! From 9am-2pm we are in need of approximately 40 volunteers to help stuff, wrap, and tie Easter Baskets. Everything will be organized and you will have a team leader to assist. Only individuals able to serve the entire 5 hour shift and no children please. While fun, the day is extremely physically demanding so wear sneakers and something comfy!
Drivers are needed who own large vehicles and can fit approximately 50 baskets inside their vehicle. The delivery centers will include oncology and cancer care centers from Glens Falls to Albany, including Amsterdam.
Yes, at 10:46am on April 23rd, 2009 I woke up too ill to make one Easter Basket. My son who I dreamed of having would not get the thrill that morning of seeing a BIG basket waiting for him when he came downstairs. I vowed to make it up the next year.
Since 2009, we have made thousands of baskets, averaging 400 in recent years. Our baskets show the love of neighbors and are tied lovingly with a card inscribed “With God All Things Are Possible,” -Matthew 19:26.
