Each year, Prime Timers of Myrtle Beach helps the Easter bunny ensure that children get up on Easter morning to find a basket of chocolate rabbits, candy eggs, and other goodies.


The baskets are distributed by Help4Kids, a local charity that helps disadvantaged kids with a Backpack Buddies program providing food on the weekends, book bags of school supplies, clothing and shoes as needed, hygiene products, and books.

The Chapter has long coordinated our members' participation in Help4Kids' secret angel program at Christmas, and in 2014 we began helping out their Easter basket project as well. The Chapter purchases the baskets, grass, and cellophane, and individual members buy candy, toys, school supplies, and personal hygiene items to fill them.

We get together at a local restaurant for food and fellowship, then adjourn to a member's condo clubhouse to put the baskets together. There can be a bit of friendly rivalry to see who can put together the most attractive display.

The photograph above shows some of this year's participants with the Easter baskets that brightened the holiday for twenty-five families.
