ELMIRA, N.Y. (WENY) -- Community members are organizing a giveaway for the less fortunate, and are currently collecting donations.  

The giveaway is going to be Easter themed and take place on March 23rd at the H&R Block in Elmira.  Though that date is still a ways out, organizers want to get a jump start on collecting donations to make sure that there is enough for everyone who attends.   One of the organizers says she saw a need for this in the community, and wants to do her part to help.

"Just seeing some of the people there that you didn't even know who needed help, and there's other people that are just in a really rough spot right now, it just  makes me really happy to help others that need it at this time," said Jessica Northrup, one of the organizers of the event.

Northrup says they are accepting donations at Mystery Unicorn Magic Art Studio in Hanover Square.  Donations will be accepted up until the giveaway in March.  Northrup says she hopes that giveaways like these will become a regular event.  Donation items and drop off times can be found below.

H&R Block is located at 299 S Main St, Elmira, NY 14904.

Mystery Unicorn Magic Art Studio is located at 120 S Main Street Horseheads, 14845.
