Hoboken Grace, a nondenominational community church, hosted its annual Easter Egg Hunt at Mama Johnson Field in Hoboken on March 27.
The free event featured 15 socially distanced hunting areas, with over 25,000 candy and toy-stuffed eggs as well as arts & crafts and pictures with the Easter Bunny.
Over 1,600 people attended the event over the course of five hours and over 300 children received “hunt to-go” bags to enjoy at home.
“There’s no bigger celebration than Easter, and we at Hoboken Grace love celebrating with our community in this way,” said Lead Pastor at Hoboken Grace Chris High. “This year was special, our team went to great lengths in our planning to ensure that we could safely bring our neighbors back together without sacrificing what makes the event so special for families and children.”
“We are so thankful to our community partners for their close coordination and willingness to hear our plan,” said Community Impact Director at Hoboken Grace James Sproule. “We know that many families—and particularly children—have been emotionally and mentally impacted by significant disruptions to their daily lives, so it was just amazing to hear from so many about how important this event was to them. It’s important to us that everyone in our community knows that they are welcomed and loved by Hoboken Grace.”
