(BREESE, IL) – HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital Breese donated 70 Easter baskets to BCMW in Breese, the Hispanic Ministries for the Belleville Diocese and St. Vincent DePaul.
St. Joseph’s Breese colleagues collected baskets and donated $500 for the purchase of the items to fill them. Baskets were created for all ages, ranging from infants to adults. The Easter baskets contained necessities such as soaps, lotions, and wash cloths, but also items like crayons, jump ropes, books and gift cards.
“We are overjoyed to be able to provide these Easter baskets for those in need in our local and surrounding communities,” said Maggie Timmermann, physical therapist and Mission Team member at HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital. “Joy is one of our Core Values, and we are excited to be able to spread joy to those on Easter."
