COMMUNITY EASTER BASKETS FOR FENTON AREA CHILDREN IN NEED
Efforts are underway to help families in need in Fenton and surrounding communities by providing Easter Baskets for children age birth through 8th grade. This project involves the combined efforts of local area churches, businesses, and volunteers. We are asking the community for assistance to ensure that each child may have their own Easter Basket to enjoy! Easter baskets will be assembled on Thursday, March 28th at 9:00 am in the Family Life Center next to the Fenton United Methodist Church, 119 S. Leroy. Baskets will be available for pick up from 1-4 pm on Thursday March 28th. Volunteers are welcome to assist with the basket assembly.
If you need or know of a family in need of assistance in Fenton or surrounding communities, please call LOVE, INC at (810) 235-4990 (8:30 am - 12:30 pm Mon-Fri) to request an Easter Basket for your child/children.
