Hughes & Coleman donates 50,000 Easter eggs to community organizations

BOWLING GREEN Ky.- The coronavirus pandemic caused the cancellation of the 13th annual Hughes and Coleman Easter Egg Hunt this year. In response, the Bowling Green firm hatched up a new plan.

“The Easter egg hunt is something that we look forward to each year. Since we weren’t able to do that, we wanted to find another way to give joy and provide for those within our community,” said Hughes and Coleman marketing coordinator Lora Fisher.

Some 50,00 Easter eggs filled with candy, stickers and more were donated Wednesday morning to several local organizations, like Cultivate Kindness.

Robin Loid, one of the Cultivate Kidness co-founders stopped on over to the law office when she learned of the opportunity.

“Wow, what a blessing. We’ve always had many supporters through Cultivate Kindness, but when we received this call, we knew immediately we were going to serve Warren County well,” Loid said.

Representatives from those organizations picked up the eggs by truck. They’ll soon be distributed to children throughout the community.

Fisher, said it’s a great way to celebrate, even when times are tough.

“We know that times are different, especially for the children. This may bring them a fun activity they can do while staying healthy at home,” Fisher said.

While the current situation is dire, Loid said the community will continue to egg each other on when it comes to unity.

“We’re excited to do an Easter egg drop that we’ve started. We’re very excited to put smiles on children’s faces this year,” Loid said.
