The Shelton Community Lions Club held an Easter food drive in February and March, collecting several hundred pounds of food as well as cash donations.

The money contributions were used to buy more food, including a few Easter bunny treats). The items were used to create decorative Easter baskets that were distributed to Shelton families prior to the holiday.

“The Shelton Community Lions Club would like the thank the Shelton community for the wonderful support and generosity during our recent Easter basket food drive,” club officials said in a posting on the club’s Facebook page. “Your donations will help 25 less fortunate Shelton families enjoy a great Easter and their children to have Easter baskets.”
