Dozens of people congregated at Rolling Hills Christian Church in El Dorado Hills Saturday morning to make Easter baskets and sack lucnhes for the homeless.

Assembly lines made sandwiches while at other tables families colored Easter eggs. Coordinator Stephanie Thayer said church volunteers would hand out 200 goodie bags to the homeless that include a sack lunch, shocks and toiletries. Another 500 sack lunches were also made. About half were sent up to Placerville; the other half went to Sacramento.

The 80 Easter baskets made went to children in the Cameron Park area. The little girls also received pillowcase dresses.

The church also collected hundreds of pairs of shoes for distribution to the homeless.
