March 28, 2018 GMT

BULLHEAD CITY — Heaven’s Precious Angels will give 25 Easter baskets to families in the Bullhead City and Fort Mohave area for free by reservation only.

Nancy Milner, founder of the organization, said it’s a gesture to thank people for their donations that allow her to provide area hospitals with baby burial dresses made from wedding gowns.

Reserve a basket containing items suitable for children ages 10 and younger by calling 928-234-1967.

She said she also is accepting donations to continue her efforts to provide comfort to local families who have lost babies stillborn, born too prematurely to survive or who die in infancy. That would include cash donations as well as wedding, confirmation, christening, prom and cocktail dresses. The special occasion dresses and gowns are the source of materials used for the burial gowns.
