On Holy Saturday, volunteers handed out Easter baskets to 150 apartments in Southeast, DC. Each year we hand out goodies for the kids as well as a special basket for the mothers. The bags for the kids were filled with candy and bubble wands. The mothers received an easter basket with a potted plant! A religious gift, an invitation to church, and an offer of help was also included.
Each year, outreaches provide volunteers with the opportunity to meet and pray with families in the neighborhood. Volunteers were able to pray with the great-grandmother of eight-year-old Relisha Rudd, who has been missing in DC since March. Relisha’s story is well-known throughout DC and we are often requested to pray for her and her family.
We’re very grateful to all our donors for providing for our Easter Outreach. Thank you for your prayers. Have a blessed Easter season!
