Future‘s FreeWishes Foundation will be celebrating Easter with members of the Atlanta community. On Saturday, April 8, they’ll host their annual Easter festival and egg hunt complete with games, food, face painting and a special appearance from the Easter Bunny, among other things.
“Our goal with our annual community-wide event is to bring people from all walks of life together,” Future said in a statement, per The Source. “It’s a great way for everyone to have fun, celebrate and strengthen bonds within the community.”
FreeWishes Community Engagement Director Tia Wilburn adds, “The impact that COVID had on many communities is still felt today. Many communities drifted apart and are still trying to return to normalcy. FreeWishes will continue to create experiences that allow the community to connect and build healthy relationships with each other.”
She continues, “After a very successful event last year, our foundation wanted to continue serving the community for Easter. This event is another way to tackle the health and wellness disparities plaguing our community. So much can be resolved by us coming together and doing activities. Kids need activities; as a community, we must step up. We service the community all year round with our various initiatives, but holidays have always been special for us.”
FreeWishes Foundation’s Easter event, held in partnership with Restaurateur, The B.A.N.K Foundation (Blessings All Neighborhood Kids) and Pawkids, will take place at Butler Park starting at 1 p.m. Children are instructed to bring their own basket.
