Escalon High School’s Ag Department has kicked off an Easter Basket Drive, which will help provide baskets at the annual Kiwanis Club Easter Egg Hunt.

The ag department is collecting various items now through Wednesday, April 16. Sought are baskets, Easter candy, plastic eggs, cellophane, small toys, bubbles, sidewalk chalk, etc.

“Anything Easter related for small children,” ag teacher Stacy Ingalls said. “Premade baskets are great, too.”

The donations can be dropped off in Room 3 on the Escalon High School campus.

The annual Kiwanis Club hunt is staged at El Portal Middle School, with eggs hidden on the school grounds and children going on the hunt for them. Select plastic eggs have certificates for the prize baskets in them, with the ag department deciding this year to help out with preparing the baskets.

Anyone can contribute, Ingalls added, with contributions sought from students, teachers, administrators and community residents.
