Bringing Easter to needy families
BOB FORD/TIMES NEWS Carbon County Ancient Order of Hibernian members Matthew P. Stinson Jr., left, and Dr. Clement McGinley help fill baskets Saturday morning at Molly Maguires Pub and Steakhouse. The baskets, which contain all that is needed for an Easter dinner, get distributed to Catholic churches in Carbon County to be given to a needy family in the parish.
The Carbon County Ancient Order of Hibernians is in the Easter spirit, and it's spreading.
Six members of the club got together Saturday morning to put together Easter baskets for needy families in Carbon County. The baskets contain everything needed for an Easter feast, including a ham, vegetables, potatoes, dinner rolls and even dessert.
The AOH put together 10 baskets that were delivered to all of the Catholic churches in the county. The churches then distribute them to a needy family in their parish.
This is the eighth year that the AOH has delivered the meals. The organization also helps needy families around Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.
