In the spirit of sharing with the community the fruits of their labor, the Philadelphia Club Frontiers International will hold its 13th Annual Easter Egg Hunt for 200 of the Philadelphia regions youth on Saturday, April 03, 2010 at 10:30 am on the campus of New Covenant, 7500 Germantown Avenue, Philadelphia, PA.
President Dr. Gregory Stephens and his fellow members have partnered with various elected officials, churches, civic, social service agencies and youth groups from across the city of Philadelphia and surrounding suburbs to have children between the ages of 3 and 10 to participate in a day of fun filled activities, which includes a chance to meet the Easter Bunny.
The children will also have an opportunity to win prizes, receive gift baskets and enjoy a complimentary lunch. In addition, 50 students will have an opportunity to win a United States Savings Bonds to use towards their educational endeavor. Stephens states, “We are unified in our belief that our most cherished assets – our children truly benefit when you have the collective efforts of a committed group of caring and involved volunteers.” “One of our many missions is to provide for those in need,” continues Stephens.
