Members of the Outreach, Unity and Renewal (OUR) club, Interact club and National Honor Society (NHS) hosted an Easter party at the Academy for the children of Loliana Hale, a transitional housing shelter for families.

More than 30 children participated in an Easter egg hunt and received bunny ears created by the students. The children were given carrots after visiting and took photos with the Easter bunny, a senior dressed in an Easter bunny costume.

Senior Nicole Pagdilao said, “I dressed up as Santa Claus during our Christmas party at Loliana Hale and enjoyed the event so much that I wanted to be the Easter bunny, too. I loved seeing all the kids walk up to me and talk about random things. They were always smiling and it made me so happy, which will definitely make it memorable. Although there were some kids who were scared of me, they seemed to have a great time playing the other games.”

The children also enjoyed a water balloon game, blowing bubbles and drawing on the ground with chalk. The afternoon ended with a special treat of brownies and ice cream.

The annual Easter party is designed to let the children of Loliana Hale know “Somebunny Loves You.”
