Justin B. made modifications for Covid-19 and delivered Easter baskets for the 11th year in a row. What started as a one-time God and Family project has turned into an annual service project called “Easter Goodies from Youth to Youth” and has been adopted by Boy Scout Troop 1. Initially they were unsure of whether EGYY 2020 would happen this year, but after contacting 4 family service centers and hearing that they would still like to receive donated Easter baskets, the decision was made to go forward with EGYY 2020 with the following modifications:
- Only 1 person assembled the baskets out in the driveway (instead of by Boy Scout Troop 1 at Grace Episcopal Church);
- Shipping and curbside delivery was utilized to avoid all contact;
- Baskets were delivered early to be quarantined prior to distribution on Easter.
This year Justin donated 24 baskets in the Louisville KY area and Boy Scout Troop 1 donated 23 baskets in the Paducah KY area. That brings the 11 year running total to 308 children that hopefully had a little bright Easter because of these community Good Samaritans!
