An Odessa mother decided to give back to the community in the spirit of Easter with Easter baskets for local children in need.

According to YourBasin.com, Marla Kirk and dozens of volunteers spent weeks getting baskets together for local needy children.

Area businesses donated the items that were put in the baskets.

This is the second year Kirk and her volunteers have done this for the local children. She stated that this year her requests almost tripled for people in need.
