Windsor — At least two local nonprofits gave the Easter bunny a boost this season, providing treats for local nursing home residents and others.

Members of the Windsor Elks Club, including one dressed as the benevolent bunny, visited five nursing facilities last Sunday to deliver stuffed animals and other gifts.

“It took three hours to complete the rounds, but it was very rewarding and enjoyable to see how (excitedly) the residents received us,” the group said in an email.

The Claremont Area AARP Chapter donated a total of 110 goodie bags to local agencies.

The candy went to the Residential Recovery Center at White River Junction VA Medical Center; McCoy Home for the Elderly in Newport; Village at Cedar Hill in Windsor; Peaceful Harvest Home in Charlestown; and Silver Maples and Pathways of the Upper Valley, both in Claremont.
