HENRYVILLE, Indiana – Two churches teamed up to bring a joy to Henryville residents, after devastating tornadoes struck their area in March.

Members of Our Savior Lutheran Church and First Baptist Church opened their hearts to host an Easter egg hunt.

But it wasn’t your ordinary Easter egg hunt. More than 300 Easter baskets were donated to the tornado victims, stuffed with everything from toys to candy.

“The children have lost so much, and they are still happy, still thriving we have brought joy to them,” said volunteer Heidi Keairns.

“It’s very humbling,” said one tornado victim. “We never asked for help or been handed out anything.  It is all about hope to show that people are there and how much they care.”

The pastor who helped organize the event says caring is easy.

“We are all apart of one big family, God’s family,” said organizer Chuck Fosel. “The love is there whether we live in Henryville or Louisville, Kentucky. We share that love of Christ with one another.”
