Help brighten a child’s Easter this year by donating to Easter for Eli!
Easter for Eli was started by Martin Garrett, whose son Eli passed away from non-hodgkin’s t-cell lymphoma when he was just three-years-old. In his memory, Martin began collecting Easter baskets to be delivered to children who are hospitalized during the Easter holiday. Last year, the charity donated 1,800 baskets and $4,500 worth of gift cards to children at hospitals across Pennsylvania and Maryland.
Baskets must be labeled for the age group, and may not include food or candy. If you are unable to make a basket but still want to help, donations of Sheetz, Amazon, and iTunes gift cards are welcome. All donations must be received by Sunday, April 2.
