We're planning on another "money hunt" for social action this Easter, March 31.
Instead of filling plastic eggs with candy, please donate a dozen eggs filled with money – any amount of money, from pennies to dollars. The hunt can begin in your home as you search together for loose change in the couch cushions or the junk drawer J. If your family will be out of town for Easter, you are encouraged to still participate by contributing filled eggs. Our youth will hide the eggs as usual, and the children will hunt for a designated number. But instead of taking home a bunch of candy, the kids will then be able to add their money together. All of the money collected will go to our spring social action focus, the Center for Nonviolent Solutions. (And as an added bonus parents - no candy! No allergy concerns or tantrums about wanting more candy).
We especially encourage families who will have children involved in the hunt to bring a dozen eggs, but the entire congregation is encouraged to donate money eggs - even those who have no children or whose children are grown. Let's show the children how much we care.
Plastic eggs will be available in the Bancroft room beginning this Sunday for your family to take home and fill, or you can buy your own plastic eggs from just about anywhere. Please return them filled as soon as possible, but at the latest by Easter Sunday, March 31.
