Hand Up assembled eighty (80) Easter Baskets and distributed them to our elderly living at Nell Court and also the children living in the Castle Ridge apartment complex. Great care was taken in assembling the baskets for both the old and young. Healthy snacks were the majority of the food; fresh fruit, granola bars, tuna to-go, mini spaghetti "O's" and naturally, a selection of chocolate eggs and bunnies.
The elders received crossword puzzle books, stamped note cards, pens, tissues, lotions, mini shampoo, soaps, socks, fruit, tuna to-go, tea bags and cookies.
We also hosted a Easter Party for the Castle Ridge children. The parents and their children enjoyed hot dogs, popcorn, cupcakes, lemonade and a candy filled MINION PINATA WEARING EASTER BUNNY EARS. Small toys and trinkets were passed out to the children. It was a wonderful turn-out and the HUE members had a blast.
