Shepherd of the Valley helps fill baskets

BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) — The Easter bunny is getting some much-needed help for his big day on Sunday.

Residents at Shepherd of the Valley in Boardman spent hours on Monday packing the baskets with candy and school supplies, with each basket going to Children Services of Mahoning County.

For the residents it was a labor of love and they were thrilled to give back to their community.

“This is a wonderful thing. Some of these children would not have the opportunity to have anything for Easter if it were not for the generosity of Shepherd of the Valley nursing home,” said Patty Amendolea of Mahoning County Children Services.

Residents at Shepherd of the Valley in Niles will fill Easter baskets on Wednesday for children at Children Services of Trumbull County.
