Palatine Township coordinates this annual program which provides Easter Baskets to financially disadvantaged children, ages 10 years and younger in our community. Local churches, businesses, organizations, and individuals create baskets filled with edible treats and small toys. Last year we identified over 860 children who were extremely grateful to be recipients in this program.
If you would like to participate in this program by donating a basket, please follow these guidelines
- Please stop by the Township and pick out a bunny, chick, or egg cut-out which includes child’s first name, age, gender and assigned number,
- Or, complete and submit the 2023 Easter Basket Program Donor Sign-Up Form below. If you register online, you will be contacted via email and provided the necessary information, including the child’s information after February 20, 2023.
- Create your basket! Suggested items include: edible treats, small toys, games, hair accessories, puzzles, books, etc. The value of the basket and its contents should be approximately $25.00. All edible items must be in original packaging.
- Please wrap your basket in cellophane or another transparent material and either attach your cut-out (whether it’s a bunny, chick or egg) or include a label with the child’s name and assigned number.
