Easter egg hunt at Unitarian Church of Lincoln

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – On Easter Sunday, kids gathered at the Unitarian Church of Lincoln in search for hidden Easter eggs filled with something unique.

The eggs were filled with pennies instead of candy this year. The annual egg hunt teaches the children the importance of giving back to their community.

Chelsea Krafka, the director of religious education at the church, explained the importance of this egg hunt.

“It is important to use holidays to instill these values and here at our church we think that we want to value that.”

The kids were then able to collect the eggs and choose where they would like to donate the money to. The three organizations they could choose from were Lincoln’s Little Free Pantries, Center for People in Need, and OutNebraska.

After giving back, kids got to choose treats as a thank-you for their participation.
