Generosity of many helped Easter basket drive

Editor: The generosity of the people in Langley has touched us beyond belief.

Many thanks to:

Husky Gas Station;

Langley Orthodontics;

Super Save Group and

Vancity — Walnut Grove

Without them, we would not have been able to assemble more than 160 Easter baskets for children in need from Chilliwack to Vancouver — a total number that well surpassed our original goal.

It was help that was so greatly needed.

While for many kids, Easter is a joyous time of year, filled with egg hunts and chocolate bunnies, there are so many others who never experience those joys because of emotional or financial hardships on their families.

In an attempt to bring a glimmer of happiness to all children this Easter, we wanted to assemble fun-filled Easter baskets containing toys, books, games and an assortment of traditional Easter candy for young children and their families who obtain assistance from the women’s transition houses in our community, including Ishtar.

We couldn’t have done it without the generosity of so many in our community.
