The Waukee Area Christian Food Pantry is preparing for our annual Easter “Baskets of Love” distribution. Over 1,100 Easter baskets have been distributed since 2008.
The baskets are given to children through the pantry. These baskets are unique because each child will receive traditional Easter goodies as well as new socks and underwear.
Please help us continue to serve the growing number of children in need by donating an item or two to help fill our baskets.
- NEW socks and underwear (all sizes, grades K-12, girls and boys)
- Easter candies / healthy snacks
- Small toys (bubbles, sidewalk chalk, cards, coloring books, jump ropes, etc.)
Cash donations are also needed to purchase Easter storybooks, Children’s Bibles and any additional items required to complete the baskets.
Checks should be made payable to “Waukee Area Christian Services” with a memo for ‘Easter’. Online donations can be made here.
Donations may be dropped off at the food pantry during regular pantry hours or left in the shopping cart by the doors. Donations may also be dropped off at the Waukee Family YMCA, Green State Credit Union-Waukee locations, or any one of our partner churches.
Donations are needed by March 30. Click HERE for a printable flyer.
Baskets will be distributed the week before Easter.
