• Palatine Township coordinates this annual program which provides Easter Baskets to financially disadvantaged children, ages 10 years and younger in our community. Local churches, businesses, organizations, and individuals create baskets filled with edible treats and small toys. Last year we identified over 600 children who were extremely grateful to be recipients of this program.

    If you would like to participate in this program by donating a basket, please follow these guidelines:

    • Stop by the Township anytime between February 16 and March 16 and sign out a bunny, chick, or egg cut-out which includes child’s first name, age, gender and assigned number, or
    • Complete and submit the 2018 Easter Basket Program Donor Sign-Up Form. Mail or drop off at the Township. (Once received, we will contact you with the necessary information.)
    • Register online beginning February 16, 2018 using the online form below. Once received, we will contact you with the necessary information.
    • You will receive the child’s information after March 9.
    • Create your basket! Suggested items include edible treats, small toys, games, hair accessories, puzzles, books, etc. The value of the basket and its contents should be approximately $25.00. All edible items must be in original packaging.

    • Please wrap your basket in cellophane or another transparent material and either attach your cut-out (whether it’s a bunny, chick or egg) or include a label with the child’s name and assigned number.

    Registration ends March 16, 2018

    Return all baskets and donations to the Township by March 21.
