Framingham Preschool Celebrates Easter Early; Creates Easter Baskets for Homeless Shelter

FRAMINGHAM – With Easter coming up this weekend, Loving Nest Preschool decided to celebrate early by helping those in need.

The preschool, located on Waverly Street, raised money to put together 16 Easter baskets for the children staying at Pathways Shelter.

According to its website, Pathways Shelter is “a fourteen-family congregate shelter for homeless families,” that is staffed 24 hours a day. The staff helps families in “acquiring permanent, affordable housing, as well as medical, educational, vocational and social services.”

According to Vera Linardi, Director of Loving Nest, the initiative for the Easter baskets was created by Ms. Donna and Ms. Tricia of the Tiger Room.

“They did a great job involving the children and families from the whole school who were kind enough to donate,” Lindardi said.

In addition to creating these Easter baskets, Loving Nest Preschool also serves the community by taking collections for food pantry and collecting toys at Christmastime for children staying at the Children’s hospital.
