Easter Basket Project In Longview

   A couple of Longview volunteers are trying to make this Easter season a bright one for children by supplying them with Easter baskets. Nikki Dailey and Laura Williams wanted to brighten the lives of foster children by supplying a couple of dozen Easter baskets, but as the donations rolled in, it turned into over 2700 baskets for kids in three counties. Dailey has been a foster parent to four children and she wanted to let kids in this situation know that they're loved. 

   $5500 in donations in two weeks made it possible for Dailey and her volunteer partner Laura Williams to stuff baskets full of candy and toys for 2743 children in Gregg, Rusk, and Cherokee counties.  They're providing baskets for Buckner Childrens services and C-P-S.
