Students involved with the Catholic Campus Ministry at the College of New Jersey, Ewing, gathered after Mass March 27 to make Easter baskets for the Mount Carmel Guild of Trenton. The baskets, filled with candy and holiday foods, are distributed to families from Trenton and the greater Mercer County area every year at Easter. Father Chris Colavito, chaplain, purchased the candy and the baskets for the students to assemble, a service project he hopes will turn into an annual event.
“This is the second year we did this and we hope to make it a tradition on the Sunday before Palm Sunday. This year we did twice as many baskets and hope to increase it each year.”
