Easter Baskets for Families in Need 

Brookside Church Mission Ministry Group is partnering with the Salvation Army, Child Health Services, and Southern NH Services/Head Start to donate breakfast items to 40 families this Easter.

We are seeking donations to fill the Easter Breakfast Baskets for these families in our community who don’t always have enough to eat. We are collecting cereal, oatmeal, coffee, tea, peanut butter, boxed milk, pancake mix, and syrup.

Food donations can be made in the church office at 2013 Elm St., or you can also donate money to the effort online here. Please mark your donation “Brookside Easter Baskets.”

All food items should be brought in by April 7.

On Palm Sunday, April 14, your are invited to join us for worship and following the service we will place the food donations in all 40 baskets and prepare them for distribution. Please join us in this effort. Thank you
