Cross-Cultural Club students in Atlantic City with their completed baskets for donation.

On March 22, more than 20 members of the Cross-Cultural Club prepared a donation of 40 Easter baskets for the children of homeless families.  The baskets were delivered the same day to the Atlantic City Rescue Mission, who will give the baskets to the children. The baskets, candies, coloring books and small toys were bought by the club, and members worked assembly-line fashion to complete the charitable project.
