Every kid loves getting an Easter Basket from the Easter Bunny! To help make Easter brighter for area kids in need, Jumpin' Jungle is collecting donations for Lake Erie Food Rescue, which is working with Community Shelter Services to give the children in Erie's homeless shelters an Easter to remember. 

Jumpin' Jungle's goal is to fill 75 baskets for the children in the shelters of our community. Jumpin' Jungle will give a 10% off coupon for each person who donates. Community Shelter Services is asking for the following to stuff the Easter baskets:

  • Socks
  • Underwear
  • Diapers/Wipes
  • Bulk Candy
  • School/Art Supplies
  • Playdoh
  • Bubbles
  • Books
  • Stickers
  • Puzzles
  • Flash Cards
  • Toys
  • Toiletries
  • Feminine Hygene Products
  • Body Wash
  • Deodorant 
  • Shampoo/Conditioner
  • Hair Accessories
  • Non-perishable Foods
  • Packaged Snacks

The age range of children who will receive the baskets ranges from infants to 17. 

Please drop off donations between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. daily at Jumpin' Jungle. Questions? Call (814) 431-0041 or email

In addition, all proceeds from the Jumpin' Jungle and Once Upon a Party Private Easter Hop events on March 30 will go to Lake Erie Food Rescue.

The Private Easter Hop includes a 45-minute Private Bounce Session with the Easter Bunny, a small Egg Hunt for your group with treats inside from a local vendor, and an opportunity to get a picture with the Easter Bunny.
