The Easter bunny was busy Saturday, and ended up at the Gospel Mission Food Pantry in Marietta.

For weeks the pantry has been collecting donations to make Easter baskets for kids in need. The community really responded.

Last weekend, volunteers spent several hours putting together around 150 Easter baskets.

Director Candy Waite says they want to make the holiday special for every kid.

"We ask the community for help to fill the Easter baskets and the community helped us tremendously get the Easter baskets filled for the kids in our area that needs an Easter basket." says Waite.

The adds the looks on the kids' faces makes it worthwhile.
