Easter Basket Drive for the Children at Thomas House Family Shelter
Our very first event in July, 2016 was supporting Thomas House Family Shelter, a homeless shelter with a mission to “provide a safe, supportive environment and the resources necessary for homeless families with children to remain together while empowering them to become independent and self-sufficient.” See https://www.thomashouseshelter.org/.
We did a backpack drive for the beginning of school in 2016, and collected 45 backpacks. Our video to promote the event is here: Backpack Drive Video. Our video showing photos from this event is here: Video and Photos from the Backpack Drive.
We are going to support them again! We are doing an Easter basket drive and event on March 28th from 1:00-3:00pm (location to be announced). At the event we will teach you to spread awareness about the homeless crisis in California, and we will assemble the baskets for over 40 children.
We need your help! We need you to donate many items that will be included in Easter baskets for all of the children living at the shelter.
Peeps Marshmallow candy
Toys and goodies for all ages
We want to make sure that every kid gets a fun Easter with many surprises and treats. With your help with donations we can make that happen. All donations need to be in by March 25. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for drop off locations near you and for more information about the event.
