Easter Basket Program

Applications start on February 1st each year and continue until one week before Easter. To apply for Easter baskets, you will need to call Community Services at 860-628-3761 to make an appointment. The same guidelines used for the Easter baskets are used for the WIC Program. Click here to see if you are eligible.

You will need to bring in the following items:

• Proof of Residency
• Proof of income form everyone in the household

Each January, Community Services starts gathering candy, toys, stuffed animals, action figures, cars, trucks, coloring books, small sports items, small outdoor toys, gift cards, puzzles, books and other donated goods. These items are assembled into Easter baskets for qualified Southington children from birth through high school ages. Filled, wrapped baskets will be labeled with the child’s age and gender with the assistance of ESPN volunteers. Baskets are distributed the week prior to Easter. What a great sense of satisfaction it is to light up a child’s face on Easter morning and also to lift up their parent’s spirits.
