Candy, Small Toys and Plastic Eggs Needed For Upcoming Spring Egg Hunt At Community Center

Coming in just a few weeks, on April 19th at 10am, will be the very popular Spring Egg Hunt at Laurelhurst park for ages 12 and under.

And to make it as successful as past years, Cara Brown, the Recreation Coordinator, is soliciting donations of candy for the egg hunt, plastic egg donations as well as small items for the prize baskets.

"We are expecting several hundred kids to participate again this year and would like to distribute enough eggs for all the kids to enjoy!" Cara told us.

Cara told us that candy donations should be individually wrapped and fit in the plastic eggs.   Items for the prize baskets for ages 3 and under should not pose a choking hazard and for ages 4-10 could be such items as chocolate bunnies, sidewalk chalk, stuffed bunnies, any leftover birthday party prizes that people may have around the house such as bubbles, etc. 

Candy can be dropped off at the Community Center  Monday – Friday between 9-2pm and Monday or Wednesday evenings between 4-7p.m

Cara also is looking for volunteers to help during the event.  Interested high School students will get volunteer credit.

To sign up to volunteer and for more information contact Cara at 615-0617 or cara.brown@seattle.gov.
