At this time many parents and people who just like to make Easter Baskets are busy right now creating a basket. I have already made four for friends and family. We’ll talk about those later.
On a recent Monday evening members of Delta Sigma Theta gathered at the Martin Luther King Elementary School on the North Side of Pittsburgh and put together 27 Easter dinner baskets for deserving families. Imogene Hines of Delta Sigma Theta said DST realized that there is much attention given to candy and sweets so we pledged to address hunger deficit in Black families by offering a full family meal instead. We hope that others will follow our lead and adopt other families in need at local schools. We addressed the hunger issue twice in 2015, once with Easter Dinners and once with the holiday Turkey Dinners.
We will have mac and cheese, green beans, sweet potatoes, instant mashed potatoes, corn, gravy, jiffy corn bread, yellow cake mix, chocolate frosting, and a coupon for $15 to buy their choice of turkey, ham, or chicken. Each bag will have a card from our sorority. We thought it would be easier for those catching public transportation to have a bag instead of a heavy box.
