Senior Easter Baskets
As a kid you enjoyed getting an Easter basket full of goodies . Well the EPAB went one step better , thinking of the seniors who also would like a basket . Only this time the baskets are filled with senior goodies like toiletries , socks , a word puzzle or shampoo and toothpaste . The annual Easter baskets for seniors were delivered to 165 of our area seniors in nursing homes and rehab centers , Angelique Roman and Leti Navarette took on this project again this year with our membership bringing in or paying for baskets . Yvette Lugo of the El Paso Area on Aging took the baskets to those seniors on behalf of our association . “ I am blessed to be able to work on this project for the association , giving me and my crew a real warm heartfelt feeling ,” says Leti from EPT Bella Custom Homes . Angelique , with True Tile of El Paso added that the baskets carried items less fortunate seniors can use . “ We ask that these baskets reach the seniors in a show of love and support ,” she told the Outlook .
