Spring is approaching, which means Easter will be here soon. For many people, Easter is a time for celebration with family. However, some underserved families in San Bernardino County are able to provide very little to celebrate the holiday. With the hope of giving these families an Easter to remember, Project Boon is partnering with Inland Valley Recovery Services (IVRS) once again for their annual FREE Easter event. Project Boon and IVRS partner to support underserved communities and those in recovery by providing a holiday meal, health services, The Easter Bunny, and Easter baskets.

The Annual Easter Event will be on Wednesday March 25, 2020 from 12:00pm-4:00pm at IVRS, located at 939 North D St, San Bernardino, CA 92410. During the event, over 800 residents from local underserved communities will come together for a warm meal, needed resources, and Easter fun!

The day includes:

  • A hot meal
  • Health and resource vendors
  • Clothing for men, women, and children
  • An opportunity for a photo with The Easter Bunny
  • Easter basket and egg hunt for children
  • Raffle giveaways

For families with transportation limitations, OnmiTrans will be providing all day bus passes for free. Interested families can arrange to receive one of these passes by contacting Project Boon.

Joel Clelland, Board Chair (Project Boon), knows the importance of giving back to the community and has seen first-hand the difference these events make in the lives of those who attend.

“I had the opportunity to work alongside Project Boon and IVRS for both the Thanksgiving and Christmas events (at IVRS in San Berdnardino). I witnessed so many wonderful people giving of the best of themselves to make the lives of people in the neighborhood brighter. I’m looking forward to this year’s events.”
