SARATOGA SPRINGS – Local organizers of the “Helping Families Cope with Cancer, One Household at a Time” campaign are pleased to announce the 9th Annual Project Easter Bunny.
Floydwarriors.com founder Lisa Morahan started the effort after experiencing Easter Sunday 2009 too ill to make one basket for her son while in chemotherapy. Over the past eight years, thousands of Easter Baskets have been created and donated to several oncology centers across the Capital Region so every child with a sick parent has a beautiful basket to enjoy.
Between March 6 and 16, donations of both new toys and wrapped candy are needed at the following locations: CR Wood Center of Glens Falls Hospital; Saratoga Spa State Park Office Building; Mollie Wilmot Center of Saratoga Hospital; Malta Community Center; all 14 Ballston Spa National Bank locations; the Hope Club of Latham; and NBT Banks on New Karner Road in Guilderland and Wolf Road in Albany.
All donations will be collected, assembled into baskets on March 24 and delivered in time for Easter.
