Over the last two years, Easter for Eli wasn’t able to build baskets, but they’ve been collecting baskets and items in preparation for their 2022 event. They are aiming high in hopes to make 10,000 Easter baskets to donate to children who are currently in the hospital.

On March 12, starting at 8 a.m., they are looking for volunteers to help load trailers and set up at the National Guard Armory in Duncansville. Then on March 13, at 8 a.m., the basket build with the community will take place as they look to reach their 10,000 basket build goal while also trying to raise $10,000 in gift cards. Community members can stop by to build baskets or donate completed baskets.

The Easter for Eli non-profit was started after three-year-old Elias “Eli” Garrett lost his courageous battle with non-Hodgkins T-cell Lymphoma on May 7, 2009. In his memory, “Easter for Eli” was started to collect Easter baskets for children who are hospitalized during Easter.

The event looks to make this the biggest “Easter for Eli” yet as they will be donating to over 20 Children’s hospitals and 10 Ronald McDonald homes.
