Carol Gardner helped students sort jelly beans in the cafeteria of Holy Family School March 19.

On March 19, students at Holy Family School, 3934 Poplar Level Road, helped the parish’s Yo Yo (the young and old) group assemble Easter baskets and prayer cards.

Kindergarten to fourth-grade students met in the cafeteria with their Yo Yo buddies to sort jelly beans by color and affix a prayer to each bag. The 200 jelly bean bags will be distributed to parishioners on Easter Sunday.

Students in grades five to eight also assisted the Yo Yo group by donating Easter baskets and filling the baskets with candy and other items. The baskets will be delivered to the Schuhmann Center, an organization that aids people who are poor or homeless in the inner city of Louisville.

Shirley Peak, a member of the Yo Yo group, said this is the eighth year the group has assembled the baskets and distributed the prayers. She estimates that the group will deliver about 90-100 Easter baskets this year.
