Community Easter Egg Hunt Coming to Samaritan Inn

easter_eggsThe Samaritan Inn welcomes the community to participate in an Easter Egg Hunt on the newly purchased 15-acres of land that is intended to become a new family homeless shelter.

Along with approximately 60 children who sleep at the Inn each night, the community is invited to bring their families to a fun-filled day with face painting, a cupcake walk, egg coloring, bounce house, balloon artist, music and food. The Easter Bunny will be on hand for photos with children. Activities begin at 11 a.m. on April 19 at 1514 N. McDonald Street in McKinney.

Girl Scout Troops, Student Councils, Youth Groups and more than 15 churches are assisting with the event as donors of Easter eggs and activity volunteers. The event is FREE and intended to introduce the community to the new initiative to help the growing number of families experiencing homelessness in Collin County.

To assist with the event, please contact Tressie atTJohnsen@TheSamaritanInn.org or 972.632.1290 x232. For more information, please visit www.thesamaritaninn.org.
