April 7 Easter Basket Returns
Bring a smile to a child this Easter; fill and return an Easter basket!
Pick up kits in the Gathering Space Sunday, March 17 and March 24, fill up a basket and return it to the church Sunday, April 7 by noon.
Floris UMC provides Easter baskets to children in our community who are living in shelters and transitional housing each Easter. This year, the goal of the Easter Basket Ministry is to fill 900 - 1000 baskets. Floris UMC families will pick up kits representing a child and then purchase a basket and no more than $25 worth of goodies to fill the basket.
When baskets are returned, please be sure that the provided tag is visibly in place and the basket is securely wrapped using the cellophane bag you received with the tag.
