Easter Basket Items Needed for Children Battling Cancer

Michaela Madison Reporting

(Friday, March 9th) Ohio – Non-Profit Project Ed Bear is asking the community to help fill 85 Easter baskets for children battling Cancer.

The volunteer-led organization has been working closely with Akron Children’s Hospital and UH Rainbow Babies to provide comfort to kids with cancer since 1994.

Dr. Jeffery Hoard with Akron Children’s Hospital says the organization has been great for the kids and the hospital as a whole.

“Over the 13 years that I’ve been here now, I’ve worked very closely with Project Ed Bear throughout that time,” explained Dr. Hoard. “Our program has expanded and so has the help that Project Ed Bear has given us, from helping us renovate our clinic lobby so that it’s much more child-friendly.”

The community is asked to donate items like handmade cards, Amazon gift cards, Easter stuffed animals, crayon sets, journals, and more.

The donation deadline is March 23rd and can be mailed to:

656 Chilham Circle

Uniontown, Ohio 44685
