Easter basket delivery brings joy to children living in shelters

April 9, 2010

A drive to collect money and supplies to provide Easter baskets to children living in domestic violence and homeless shelters was a great success, according to organizers Kylie Faure, an undergraduate criminal justice major, and Rae Taylor, Ph.D., assistant professor of criminal justice.

Faure and Taylor collected items like small toys, candy, plastic eggs and money from the Loyola community during March and the beginning of April. On Easter weekend, they delivered 60 baskets to the shelters.

Faure and Taylor want to thank generous donors who include Karen Reichard, Ph.D., and the Women’s Resource Center, Kelly Brotzman and the Office of Service Learning, Sue Menino, Ph.D., and Loyola Social Justice Scholars, Eileen Chapoton, Tom Ryan, Ph.D., and Loyola Institute of Ministry, Information Technology, Alpha Chi Omega, Vesna Milojevich, Leigh Gutierrez, Justine Aguiar, Vincenzo Sainato, Ph.D., Macy Taylor, Scott Taylor, Ray Humphries, and numerous anonymous donors.
