With the arrival of spring comes Easter baskets, bunnies, colored eggs and special candies. This is what the foster students received from many caring individuals, along with other fun items. Friends of San Pasqual Academy, which has been caring for these foster teens for over 20 years, wanted to make sure that the foster students celebrated this holiday and were recognized. Easter baskets, stuffed bunnies and artificial grass were purchased for each foster teen by Friends of San Pasqual Academy. Members from the National Charity League, Del Norte Chapter, coordinated by Amy Jones, purchased and collected personal hygiene items and created fabulous Spring Bags for all the foster youth, that were filled with shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, body wash, dental items, dyed eggs, chocolate eggs and more.

Kathleen Moskovitz coordinated with members of the Ocean Hills Country Club, that also provided numerous hygiene items, which included lotion, body wash and finger nail polish. They also crafted beautiful festive inserts for all the bags. The wonderful bags and baskets were given to all the foster students and their gratitude was apparent. They greatly appreciated these unique gifts and will remember this holiday as a very special day, where they were supported and cared for by many individuals.
