March 29 Easter Basket Returns
Bring a smile to a child this Easter; fill and return an Easter basket!
Pick up kits in the Gathering Space on Sunday, March 8 and March 15, fill up a basket and return it to the church on Sunday, March 29 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, purchase a basket and fill the basket with no more than $25 worth of goodies.
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.
If you need to make alternative arrangements to drop off your basket, please contact Donna Porter, firstname.lastname@example.org, before the return date of March 29.
