How are funds donated for Baskets of Joy used?
Baskets for Children
This project is for the community by the community! Easter baskets are put together using donated items and funds from our community and given to area kids in need. In 2019 1,209 Easter baskets were given to recipient organizations, including shelters and outreach programs.
In 2020, over 1,500 Easter baskets will be given to children staying in shelter or involved in outreach programs in Southeastern Wisconsin.
Easter Egg Hunt
In 2019, we held our first annual Easter egg hunt for over 100 children and their families! For 2020, we are growing our Easter egg hunt to include over 300 children and their families with over 10k candy filled eggs!
