Rockport resident working to gather Easter baskets for kids in foster care

Cher Buffington and Lonestar Social Services of Corpus Christi will be hosting an Easter basket drive.

ROCKPORT, Texas — A woman in Rockport is working to gather Easter basket donations for kids in foster care.

Cher Buffington is working with Lonestar Social Services of Corpus Christi, a 'foster-to-adopt' agency to host an Easter basket drive for those children who are waiting to be adopted.

Even though the holiday is still just over a month away she says the hope is that the extra time will mean that each child receives something.

"Just trying to keep the consistency going, for those kids. A lot of them have a lot of trauma, they’re scared and uncertain,” said Buffington. “They run from infants to teenagers so Lonestar is just trying to keep the consistency and provide them a little bit of normalcy in a pretty non normal time.”
