Easter Baskets

posted Mar 2, 2018, 1:03 PM by Holliston Newcomers
Hi Everyone,
We have a timeline for the Easter Baskets! I will have a list of participants and basket ideas on March 9th.

Drop off of baskets will be at my home the weekend of March 23rd - more information to come (baskets/gift cards do not get dropped off at the food pantry).
We are also looking for volunteers to donate:
  • Additional gift cards to Target or Fiske's so we can put together any extra baskets.
  • Extra candy, gift bags, small items to go with the 14-18 age group gift cards (examples: lip gloss, lotion, nail items, body spray, makeup bag, water bottle, pens, etc.)
How it works:

Families sign up with the Holliston Pantry Shelf and provide the child's gender, age and some ideas of what the child likes or specific interests. You let me know if you would like to participate in making a $25-$30 basket and how many baskets or gift cards you would like to donate, then I will send you the information.
We are also continuing our partnership with Fiske's in Holliston. You will be able to pick your basket at the store, get 20% off items and they will put your basket together! Note: Fiske's has gift certificates for ALL ages for use in Easter Baskets!
  • Ages 0-3 get a $25 gift card to either Babies-R-Us or Target 
  • Ages 4-13 get a $25-$30 Easter Basket
  • Ages 14-18 get a $25 gift card to Target or Fiske's
If you already know that you would like to participate, you can e-mail me ( the following information, and I will follow up with you once I get the list:
  • Your name and best way to contact you
  • Number of Easter Baskets you would like to donate 
  • If you prefer to donate a $25 gift card
Please let me know if you have any questions, and thank you for your support!
