Huntington University collecting Easter baskets, items for SCAN

HUNTINGTON, Ind. The Huntington University Office of Alumni Relations is again collecting Easter baskets and Easter items to donate to SCAN (Stop Child Abuse and Neglect).

The sole mission of SCAN is to eliminate child abuse or neglect in northeast Indiana through family services, education and community partnerships. Huntington County is included in those counties served.

The Huntington community is invited to get involved with this worthwhile project by donating filled Easter baskets or donating items to put into Easter baskets. Suggested items to consider for baskets would include commercially wrapped or bagged Easter candy, colored plastic eggs with treats or surprises, bubbles, children's books, stuffed animals, games and toys. Baskets are to be put into cellophane bags and tied at the top so items won't fall out.

Baskets and materials may be dropped off at the Office of Alumni Relations from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. any week day until March 26. Alumni Director Margaret Roush is also willing to pick up large quantities of baskets assembled by students, clubs or businesses. For more information or to schedule a pick-up, call Roush at 260-359-4097 or Linda Taylor at 260-359-4047.
