Splurge Holds Easter Basket Drive for Children in Need


A local Easter tradition continues for the 11th consecutive year as Splurge partners with Kids in Crisis and the Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County to collect filled Easter baskets for children in need. Located at 39 Lewis St., Splurge provides a convenient downtown location for members of the community to donate filled Easter baskets now through Wednesday, March 28. Splurge owner Sonia Sotire Malloy shared, “Over the past ten years, thanks to our very generous customers and the local Girl Scouts, we have donated almost 1,000 filled Easter Baskets to Kids in Crisis and the Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County. This year our goal is to collect 150 filled Easter baskets. These baskets will touch many lives and allow local children in need share in the joy of the Easter holiday.”

Shari Shapiro, Executive Director at Kids in Crisis, says, “Sonia and SPLURGE are making the holidays special for our kids.  The donation of Easter Baskets to those staying at Kids in Crisis definitely helps to bring smiles to many faces Easter morning.  We are so thankful for the virtual hugs our residents get from supporters like Sonia.”

Kate Lombardo, Executive Director of the Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County added, “The Easter baskets bring joy and excitement to the lives of the children living in this area’s shelters. They are a bright ray of sunshine in their world at a dark time. We applaud Sonia and her team at SPLURGE for their overwhelming generosity and empathy.”

Cellophane wrapped Easter baskets can be filled with items for children ages two to 17 and can include toys, journals, games, personal care items, gift cards, packaged healthy snacks and traditional Easter candy.
