As of March 18, 2020, Bunny Aid is cancelled. You can learn more about how United Way of Central Alabama (UWCA) and United Way Hands On are helping the community during this unprecedented crisis by UWCA’s COVID-19 Response and Resources page and browse volunteer opportunities on INVOLVE, our online volunteer platform.
Peter Cottontail and United Way Hands On need your help! We are asking the public to make Easter Baskets for children at agencies such as Pathways, YWCA, Aids Alabama, The Salvation Army and the Ronald McDonald House, just to name a few. We estimate that we will need 2,500 baskets, as well as supplies to fill them.
The deadline to donate supplies is Tuesday, March 31, 2020. To donate baskets, the deadline is Thursday, April 9, 2020.
Donations and Easter baskets can include:
- non-perishable items
- small stuffed animals
- coloring books
- toys for boys and girls of all ages
- snack cakes
- fingernail polish
- brush and comb sets
- reading books
- sports items
- water bottles
- fun games
Donations should be wrapped with cellophane for easy transportation, and each basket should be labelled for age and gender.
We are also accepting Easter baskets for senior citizens with such items as toiletries, brush and comb sets, crossword puzzles, soft snacks, small stuffed animals etc.
