Before Easter parishioners can choose a needy child or children by age and gender and provide an Easter Basket to be delivered by a service agency. It is a fun and wonderful way to brighten the Easter holiday for a young child. Last year 802 Easter baskets were given to RAIN in Camarillo, Lutheran Services and Many Mansions in Thousand Oaks and Catholic Charities of Ventura, Oxnard and Moorpark.
We ask that the baskets be wrapped in cellophane and be ready to give to a child. The baskets can be store bought or handmade for children from infants to 13 years. Please deliver baskets to the parish hall before and after all Masses on the scheduled collection dates. If you miss the collection weekend, please deliver your baskets to the Pastoral Office. All parishioners are encouraged to donate an Easter Basket or two! We do take monetary donations with which we will make baskets. Please make out to AAF Easter. For more information please call Pat & Jane McDade (805)498-4043 or call Jackie Treuting (805)495-4630
2020 Collection Report
Great news for Adopt-a-Family Easter to say while the collection was cancelled, it was super successful!! There are LARGE amounts of baskets generally made before the collection with donation dollars. Thanks to Margie and Jane, the project coordinator, 556 baskets were ready to go very early. Parishioners Karen and Amanda made another large amount of baskets to be donated and various parishioners dropped their baskets at Pat and Jane's door. Pat and Jane did deliveries and 704 children will have happy smiles on Easter morning. The baskets were distributed to eight organizations. Fantastic!
