Preparing Gift Baskets - December 2008

On weekends and after school we worked hard to complete the baskets in time for the holidays. We had over fifty large baskets to fill. We brainstormed on what items would be the best and most appreciated for the seniors. Once we compiled our list, we solicited donations to help us put the most beautiful baskets together! We used large wicker laundry baskets and filled them with so many goodies and necessities. Our sponsors were so generous. You can see the list of items below which we included in the baskets. We made them ourselves and personalized each basket with the recipient's name and a color picture drawn by the three of us! We felt like we already knew each recipient because we personalized each custom-made basket for them. It was a lot of work but we enjoyed every moment of it and couldn't wait to personally deliver each one. - Nilaya
