Last year I learned about about a wonderful Saratoga Springs organization called Floyd Warriors. Their mission is very simple: to help families cope with cancer, one household at a time. Floyd Warriors assists families with necessities like getting meals delivered, houses cleaned, and kids cared for while a parent is undergoing treatment for cancer. This Easter season, the organization will be embarking on its 4th annual Project Easter Bunny.
Donations of toys and candy needed!
The idea of Project Easter Bunny began back in 2009 when Floyd Warriors founder and Saratoga mom Lisa Morahan was too sick from chemotherapy treatments to make an Easter basket for her son. in 2010, enough toys and candy were collected to make up 100 baskets and in 2012, 190 baskets were made! Several area cancer organizations and hospitals caring for cancer patients will receive this year’s bounty so children of those in treatment will have a nice big basket to open on Easter morning.
Give the gift of a Happy Easter to Capital Region families coping with cancer treatments. 10 area cancer centers and organizations will be the glad recipients of these beautiful baskets.
If you are interested in helping this effort please bring unopened candy and brand new small toys to donate to the following locations between March 7th-17th, 2013
