BPN Buena Bunnies Are Back! Bounce On By

Want to have fun and do good at the same time? Join other Buena Bunnies this Saturday and create baskets for needy children in the community.

An annual event hosted by Buena Park Neighbors block club, the Buena Bunnies will meet at St. Mary of the Lake on Saturday, April 8th, at 10am. The School Hall is located at Buena and Kenmore. Parking is in the lot on that corner, and you enter the hall from the parking lot.

The Buena Bunnies help create approximately 20 Easter baskets filled with toys and candy for children whose families receive assistance from the St. Mary of the Lake St. Vincent De Paul Society food pantry, a Greater Chicago Food Depository.

Equally important is the need for hundreds of plastic Easter eggs to be filled with candy for the St. Mary of the Lake Easter Egg hunts, which are open to all young children in the neighborhood and which are held on Easter (April 16th) on St. Mary's church lawn at 10:30am and 2pm.

Can't make it? Donations are welcome! The Buena Bunnies need pre-filled plastic Easter eggs, or empty plastic Easter eggs and small candies to fill them. You can bring them to St. Mary of the Lake church before or after Masses each day, or to the school hall on April 8 at 10 am. Supplies to fill baskets are also helpful, but please NO Easter “grass” for the baskets as we have more Easter “grass” than we need.

Have fun! Hoppin' to see you there!
