We were excited to host the Partnerships for Children (PFC) community for this special event. PFC provides critical resources to abused and neglected children in Central Texas who are in the care of Child Protective Services. Items were collected to benefit their Rainbow Room, a 24/7 resource center in the Child Protective Services office.

Special thank you to our event sponsor, HEB, and to Phoenix Clincy of Camp Gladiator, who donated over 100 Easter baskets to the children who attended the event!

About the Easter Egg Roll
The Easter Egg Roll is inspired by the White House’s Easter Egg Roll, an annual family event to hunt for and race Easter Eggs on the White House South Lawn. The holiday tradition has a long history dating back to 1878 when President Rutherford B. Hayes officially opened the White House grounds to local children for egg rolling on Easter Monday. Successive presidents have continued the tradition of inviting children to the White House Lawn for egg rolling and other activities and entertainment. Learn more about the LBJ Presidential Library’s Future Forum.
