Donated plastic eggs and candy will be used for an Easter egg hunt at Forest Lane Academy

If you can’t roll down the grocery aisle this time of year without being tempted by those delicious chocolate Easter eggs and colorful Peeps, the teachers and counselors at Forest Lane Academy have a plan to help. They’re asking for donated plastic eggs and candy to host an egg hunt for students on April 18. Their goal is 7,500 candy-filled eggs, so that each child walks away with 10 eggs.

FLA is located near Forest Lane and Audelia, just north of LBJ. More than 85% of FLA students are economically disadvantaged. Donations may be dropped off in the school’s front office, 9663 Forest Lane.
