Lee Hardy puts together hundreds of Easter baskets for kids in her local community, each year.
Lee Hardy was hard at work days before Easter. No she wasn’t prepping her Easter Sunday menu, but she was doing something she loves. Making hundreds of baskets to give away to kids in her Florida neighborhood.
Hardy, who receives the empty baskets from the Manatee Fire Department, purchases the items she stuffs them with. And every year she increases her basket goal. On Good Friday, hundreds of kids gathered at her home to pick out their baskets. Next year there maybe at least 1000 kids seeking baskets.
“I will have about 700 in here but 1,000 is my goal,” Hardy told WTSP. “One year I’m going to do that 1,000.”
“I just think of joy and love,” Hardy stated.
