Easter Basket Collection

Apr 02, 2020

Event Details

Every Spring, Friendly Center offers the chance to make Easter a little brighter for children in the community through the giving of Easter Baskets. The goal is to collect 1,000 baskets at Friendly Center Orange and Placentia on the designated collection day. After these baskets are organized by volunteers, Friendly Center distributes them at each site’s distribution events. You can contribute by dropping-off your baskets (containing the items below) on a collection day at one of our two drop-off locations. Volunteers are also needed to help distribute baskets on distribution days as well as volunteers to hosts craft tables.

Drop-off day is April 2nd

Each donated basket should contain:

  • One hygiene item (i.e. shampoo, toothbrush/toothpaste, or body wash)
  • Chocolate bunny
  • Easter candy
  • Gift items (i.e. crayons/coloring books, cars, stuffed animals, jump rope, etc.)
  • Other fun items are welcome

Note: Please wrap baskets in cellophane. Baskets for children up to 6th grade.

Two drop-off locations:

  • Orange Office – 147 W Rose Ave, Orange, CA 92867
  • Placentia Office – 900 S Melrose St, Placentia, CA 92870
