Easter Basket Program

Applications for Easter baskets start on February 1st each year and continue until one week before Easter. To apply for Easter baskets for your children (birth through 12th grade), you will need to call Community Services at 860-628-3761 to make an appointment. 

When you come to your appointment, you will need to bring:

  • Proof of Residency
  • Proof of income from every adult 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 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.
