Rather than a massive group egg hunt because of the pandemic, the NHS group will sell the festive candy-filled eggs eggs and deliver them to a yard and hidden for the kids for Easter Sunday. The prices are 30 eggs for $20, 50 eggs for $30 and 100 eggs for $55.

Alton High School NHS President and senior student Ainsley Fortschneider was a catalyst behind the idea.

"We will be delivering and hiding candy-filled Easter eggs for families in the Alton/Godfrey area," she said. "Parents and grandparents, this would be a wonderful surprise for your kids. All proceeds from this event will support the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life."

Fortschneider is a strong believer in the AHS National Honor Society program.

"This program (NHS) encourages students to continue to excel in the classroom while strengthening their relationships with local non-profit organizations," Fortschneider said. "We have partnered with several organizations throughout the year including The Salvation Army and The Women’s Oasis."
