1,500 Easter Baskets, 2K Gunlocks, issued by the Andrew Holmes Foundation

CHICAGO — Baskets and baskets of sweet treats and toys were delivered Saturday for Easter weekend.

It’s the fifth year the Andrew Holmes Foundation has been giving away Easter baskets, and the first year also a gun lock giveaway.

The crisis worker sees the effects of gun violence in the city. On Saturday, his organization not only distributed 1,500 Easter baskets to children in the community, but also 2,000 gun locks.

The reason for gifting the gun lock is to prevent accidental shots.

US women’s hockey champion Kendall Coyne Schofield and her NFL star husband Michael Scofield have been part of this tradition for years.

“We’re not home often,” said Coyle Schofield. “…it’s an honor to be out here with others who want to transform a city we love so much.”

There was a lot of love going around this Saturday on a weekend celebrating a happy holiday.
