Each year, Summit County Children Services counts on community donations to brighten up the season for children in agency custody by providing them with festive Easter baskets. This year donations are once again needed – especially for infants, school-aged and older boys.
Monetary donations are certainly welcome – but for those preferring to donate already-completed baskets, here are some suggestions. For school-aged boys’ baskets: small sports balls or outdoor toys; cars and trucks; coloring/activity books and markers, books, candy and chocolate bunnies. For pre-teen boys: hand-held games, chapter books, action figures, gadgets, small games/puzzles, candy and chocolate bunnies. CLICK HERE for a complete list of suggested Easter basket items for children of all ages.
Filled, wrapped baskets should be labeled with the child’s age and gender and delivered between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. to Summit County Children Services, 264. S. Arlington Street, Akron. These donated Easter Baskets will be delivered to children by agency Social Services staff.
