Be a Bunny is United Way of Aiken County's spring outreach project.
This year Be a Bunny collected over 600 Easter Baskets that were distributed to seniors in our community. The primary recipients were clients of Aiken Senior Life Services’(ASLS) home delivered meal program, but due to the generosity of our community we were also able to provide baskets for the Salvation Army’s senior program, Tri-Development’s seniors, and the ACTS senior food distribution to outlying areas! That is an amazing impact! One ASLS volunteer said, "One of my meal delivery clients told me today how delighted he was to receive his basket. He recited each item in the basket, so that told me he valued every one and wanted to relay his appreciation." That is what this program is all about! We want the seniors in our community to know that we care, and that they are not forgotten. Thank you to all who made it possible! 2022 also marked the return of our Easter Bunny making some in-person deliveries after taking a little time off due to COVID protocols. Thank you, Mandy Sims for taking the time to truly brighten the day of the seniors you visited!
