E-mail to the list was as follows:

Hey guys,

We'll be holding a meeting tomorrow (3/24) on the 9th floor of the Kimmel
Center at 6:30pm. I am terribly sorry for the short notice, but, we are hoping to kick off a project called "Operation Easter Bunny" tomorrow in which students prepare Easter basket care packages for expecting mothers and their unborn children. Tomorrow, we will be putting together the care packages and decorating Easter baskets in order to hand them out to mothers in need on Friday, March 26th, at the Expectant Mothercare Pregnancy Crisis Center in Brooklyn and the South Bronx.

If you can make it, that would be absolutely wonderful because we could
really use the help. If you have some art/craft supplies on hand, it'd be
great if you could bring them along.

The more items, supplies, and baskets we have, the more gifts we will be
able to make for the near 4,000 mothers Expectant Mothercare helps every
year. We're hoping to put together at least 30 - 50 Easter baskets to
surprise the mothers who come into the center on Friday with an Easter gift.
If you have any spare time and a little extra change, and would like to
pick up a few items at the dollar store or supermarket to put in the
baskets, that would be fantastic.

We need: Easter baskets, decorations (pastel/easter wrapping paper,
stickers, fake green stuffing-grass, colored cellophane, etc.), candy,
rattles, diapers, infant outfits, baby calendars, pacifiers, toys, books,
and anything else you can think of... it's completely up to you.

I'm going buy some Easter baskets and various items, but we need everyone's help to make this work. Just five dollars spent at the dollar store would help tremendously. If you'd like to come on Friday to help give out the
baskets please contact us and we'll set up a place to meet on campus before
leaving for the Center. Again, apologies for the short notice, and thank
you so, so much if you are able to help in any capacity.

Have a great week!

Thanks again.
