In the past three years more than 2,000 Easter Baskets have been distributed to the children of Lapeer County through the "Jelly-Bean & Smiles" program! Here is how you can help the less fortunate children in our community this Easter season.Donations are being accepted at Lapeer Gold & Diamond no later than April 11th. The goal is to distribute 200 Easter Baskets to children in Heartland Home Health Care & Hospice, Lapeer Area Citizens Against Domestic Abuse, Lapeer Family Literacy Center, and Lapeer Habitat for Humanity. Help spread the joy of the season by donating an assembled Easter Basket, packaged candy, coloring books, and/or any related Easter items.
