The Buena Park Neighbors Association announced that its annual Buena Bunnies charitable event will be held Sat. April 6, 10:00 a.m. at the St. Mary of the Lake Community Center in the Hagerty Building. The Hagerty Building is located at 4220 N. Sheridan Rd. just north of the St. Mary of the Lake church, and parking is available in the lot on the north side of the center.
Buena Bunnies is an annual event. All are welcome, including families, to help fill plastic Easter eggs and make Easter baskets for neighborhood children. The biggest need is for hundreds of plastic Easter eggs to be filled with small candies for the St. Mary of the Lake Easter Egg hunts which are for all young neighborhood children and held on Easter Sunday (April 21) at 10:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. on the St. Mary of the Lake church lawn, at Sheridan Rd. and Buena Ave. Also, approximately a dozen Easter baskets need to be filled with candy and small toys for children of needy families who receive assistance from the St. Vincent De Paul Society food pantry, a Greater Chicago Food Depository.
Donations of pre-filled plastic Easter eggs, or empty plastic Easter eggs and small candies to fill them, are needed and can be brought to St. Mary of the Lake church before or after Masses each day, or to the community center on April 6 at 10:00 a.m. Completed Easter baskets and supplies to fill empty baskets are also helpful, but please NO Easter “grass” for the baskets as we make our own environmentally friendly Easter “grass.”
