As the Easter holiday approaches, College of Western Idaho’s (CWI) ASL Club plans to take part in a local Easter egg hunt and can use the help from the CWI community gathering prizes!
ASL Club will take part in Idaho Educational Services for the Deaf & Blind (IESDB) and Idaho Association of the Deaf’s (IAD) Easter egg, which invites children and families who are deaf and hard of hearing to participate at Chateau Park in Meridian on Saturday, April 8. About 30 – 40 families take part in the annual Easter egg hunt, making it one of the Treasure Valley’s biggest Deaf community events of the year.
To help make the day even more special for those children and families, CWI ASL Club will be collecting candies to use as prizes. They are collecting small, wrapped candies that can fit into plastic Easter eggs, such as small chocolate eggs, small Reese’s cups, etc.
Jellybeans or unwrapped candies cannot be accepted.
CWI ASL Club is also looking to collect new and unused toys to give away as prizes.
People can drop off donated candy and toys at an upcoming ASL Club Game Night on Wednesday, Mar. 17 or contact ASL Club Secretary, Emily Anderson, at email@example.com to coordinate a time and location to pick them up. Donations are due by Thursday, March 30.
The Club has also volunteered to help put candies in each egg, set up the event, and manage food and prize tables for the event.
For those with questions, interested in volunteering, or in need of more information, contact Emily Anderson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
