PPBA 38th Annual Easter Egg Hunt

Friendship Park Community Center
Volunteers need to be at the park at 8:30 am on March 30
From Nancy Anderson, Easter Egg Hunt Chairperson:
We need your help to make this year’s Easter Egg Hunt a big success. Monetary donations are always welcome and will be used to purchase prizes for the children. Donations can be anything from a filled Easter basket, stuffed animal, game or toy. We also accept gift certificates that would be appropriate for a child or family for restaurants, toys, bowling, miniature golf, etc.
A donation of your time is also needed and appreciated. Many volunteers are needed the day of the Easter Egg Hunt. Feel free to bring family members and friends to help. Please be at Friendship Park by 8:30 am.
The PPBA Easter Egg Hunt is one of the oldest and largest in the Toledo area. It is because of your generous support over the years that it is such a success. We have had up to 1,000 people attending in past years. Over 700 prizes and handouts are given out including candy from our very own Easter Bunny. Over 1,600 plastic eggs filled with candy are spread throughout the park. Every child walks away with a prize. There are several Grand Prizes hidden in eggs in each of the five age groups.
If you have any questions or need a donation to be picked up, please call me at the number below. Donations can also be brought to the PPBA Dinner Meeting on March 20 or dropped at Rite Aid, 4869 N. Summit St. Please mark your donations to “The Attention of Nancy Anderson.” Checks should be made payable to PPBA Easter Egg Hunt and can be mailed to P.O. Box 5074, Toledo, OH 43611. Please mark outside of envelope for Easter Egg Hunt.
Thank you again for your generosity and help in the past and we know we can count on you again this year to make this a great Easter Egg Hunt for the children of our Point Place Community.
