Donations sought for staff sweets shortage

Anyone can contribute candy for the annual faculty/staff egg hunt

By Dusti Rhodes

The UH Staff Council is looking for a sugary solution to its confectionery crisis.

The council has put out a second call for candy in order to stuff the 3,000 eggs that will be used for the 14th annual egg hunt for the children of UH faculty and staff.

"Anyone, campuswide, can donate," Dawnelle Prince, Staff Council events chairwoman, said. 

Prince said candy contributions can be made by anyone at the University, including departments, organizations or individuals.

Prince said donations need to be received by Friday. Any candy will be accepted as long as it melts in your mouth, not in the egg.

"No chocolate, because it melts," Prince said, explaining that chocolate and unwrapped candy shouldn't be donated. She said unsweetened donations, including small toys, bead necklaces, T-shirts and pencils, are also welcome.

Each hunter will be given a goodie bag and prizes will be handed out for the best-looking basket in an Easter basket decorating contest.

Prince said anyone wishing to make contributions should contact her at (713) 743-4221 so she can direct them to one of the three egg-stuffing sites.

The egg hunt will take place at a time to be determined April 3 at Lynn Eusan Park. All UH faculty and staff members are welcome to bring their children.

"We look forward to having them and their little kiddos come out," Prince said.
