Phoenix Rescue Mission is seeking donations, sponsorships and volunteers for its largest community event of the year, its annual Easter Outreach Celebration, Saturday, March 19, featuring food and carnival-style activities for more than 300 struggling families with children.

The Mission also needs 1,500 filled Easter baskets, 300 plush Easter animals, 500 Easter holiday food bags (bags provided), 300 bibles, and devotionals for teens.
