Holy Saturday night volunteers will quietly cover lawns to surprise children and parents of families in need with dozens and dozens of stuffed plastic eggs. Please consider stuffing a dozen plastic eggs with stickers, candy, small toys, coins, or Chuck E Cheese tokens – there does not need to be much in each egg since dozens and dozens will be delivered. Please pack each egg with a simple prayer for the child that will be opening it up. Eggs need to be delivered to Faith @ Work (1977 E. Wattles, Troy) by Tuesday, March 22. Contact Faith @ Work, 248-250-9216, with questions.
