Baton Rouge, LA (April 2, 2015) – The Salvation Army of Greater Baton Rouge will be hosting its Annual Community Easter Egg Hunt on Sunday, April 5th. The Easter Egg Hunt will take place at The Salvation Army Community Center off 4025 W. Brookstown Dr. at 10:30 a.m. There will be several thousand eggs and special prizes available for the children.

“We are excited to be able to provide an Easter Egg Hunt for children on the north side of Baton Rouge on Sunday. There will be three age groupings and we hope that many children will come and enjoy this special morning with us,” shares Captain Brett Meredith.

LaPorte CPAs and Business Advisors in Baton Rouge reached out to The Salvation Army about helping provide the eggs and candy for this special community event.

John Gautreau II, CPA – Director of Tax Services, said, “Giving back to the communities in which we work is one of LaPorte’s principal values. While we look for opportunities throughout the year to make a difference in the lives of those around us, we typically have focused on children during the Christmas season. This year, we were moved to focus on children during other times of year, when they may not be as likely to be remembered”.

The Easter Sunday services start at 8 a.m. with a “Sonrise” Service followed by an Easter breakfast at 9 a.m., family pictures at 9:30 a.m., and worship service and children’s worship at 10:30 a.m. The Easter Egg Hunt will take place during children’s worship. If you have additional questions about this event or how you can help out, please contact The Salvation Army office at 225-355-4483. We look forward to seeing you and your family on Easter Sunday!
