Free Easter Baskets Were A HIT!

The Susquehanna River Archaeological Center (SRAC) and the Red Door Thrift Store and Coffee Shop once again teamed up to do a great thing for the community. This time it was FREE Easter baskets for the first 80 kids to visit their locations this morning - and needless to say - it was a HIT.

The 80 baskets and all contents of candy and prizes were donated by the Red Door Thrift store and 40 were given to SRAC to give out at the Center. By 10:30 am - there were people lining up on the street in front of both locations, and by 11:30am, SRAC reported all of their baskets already gone.

 SRAC's Deb Twigg reported, "People in Waverly were shown again today what good people working together can achieve, and how it benefits the whole community. I want to personally thank Mary Perry Rogers at the Red Door who called me with this idea, and then had her organization put together the baskets to give out. We are planning many other great things for the community in the coming months - so stay tuned."

SRAC and the Red Door Thrift Store are both nonprofit organizations and are located on opposite sides of the corner of Broad Street and Park Avenue in Waverly, NY. Support your local nonprofits and by doing so - you are supporting your community!
