Help Create an Easter Basket!

Nativity is repeating last year's successful Lenten project by preparing Easter food baskets for needy families served by Ritter House. You may take a basket from the rear of the church, or use your own, to fill with goodies, or you can simply donate food items and leave them in the large storage basket. Ideally each Easter basket that we donate will contain a canned ham, a bottle of sparkling cider, some Easter candy for children, and some nice side items such as canned vegetables or fruit, boxed rice or noodle dishes, rolls, etc. Be creative! Last year people included flowering plants, small stuffed animals, cupcakes, etc. Hams can be left in the church fridge or we will store them at home until time for delivery. Ritter House will pick the baskets up on Thursday morning, April 5 and distribute them to families. Our goal is to contribute 20 baskets. Thank you for your generosity!
