COLORADO SPRINGS — The Salvation Army spread some early Easter cheer Friday.

For the first time, the organization put together 87 Easter baskets for the children of families they serve.

They said because of the COVID-19 pandemic they're not able to work with those families in ways they used to.

"We're so disconnected right now because of what's going on, we wanted the kids to know that we still loved them and we missed them," said social worker Kim Tate.

A reminder the Salvation Army Food Pantry is open Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. That pantry is located at 905 Yuma in Colorado Springs.

Those who need food delivered can call 2-1-1.
