Easter dinners, lunches handed out at school

Despite the masks, their smiles were apparent.

Outside Emily Brittain Community Partnership and Demonstration School, a local nonprofit handed boxed out lunches and Easter dinners to 100 families from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.

“If we all would just share a little bit of our abundance, like we are today, they'll drive away with smiles on their faces and they'll have enough for an Easter meal,” Inspired Hearts and Hands founder and president Mindy Schnitgen said.

Schnitgen of Gibsonia said Inspired Hearts and Hands worked with Emily Brittain to distribute roughly 500 boxed lunches and 100 Easter meal kits to families of students, part of the nonprofit's Easter campaign during which it provided 850 boxed meals and hundreds of meal kits to those in need.
