Angels of God Clothing Closet is hosting their annual Easter Basket assembly and delivery day on Sunday, March 29, 2015. This is a great opportunity for the entire family to come out and participate in a “hands on” charity project. Their goal is to provide over 500 Easter baskets which will be distributed to children in need through local food pantries and homeless shelters.

All ages are welcome. Each volunteer is given a card with the gender and age of a child. Volunteers then fill the basket with items pre-sorted onto labeled tables that are appropriate for that child.

Every year there are MANY grade school and Middle school children who come out and volunteer and they have SO MUCH FUN!

PROJECT DETAILS:

There are several time slots available to volunteer, but the kids get the most out of the actual basket assembly. This occurs between 2:00 and 3:30 (see below). Angels of God asks that all volunteers sign up in advance through Sign Up Genius. 

Here is the schedule for the day and the jobs they need help with:

11:45 – Drive Easter Basket Supplies from Angels of God’s main location to the United Methodist Church

12:30 -2:00 – Set up at the United Methodist Church (arranging items on tables, making basket ribbons, etc)

2:00-3:30 Easter Basket Assembling
