McKINNEY (KRLD) – Leaders at one McKinney church decided they wanted to hold more than just the run-of-the-mill Easter egg hunt.

So, Community Life Church will stuff plastic eggs candy and prizes, but they won’t hide them.

“We are dropping 30,000 Easter Eggs from a helicopter and then allowing children from the ages of one, all the way on up to 15 [years old], to go on out and collect as many of those eggs as possible,” explained Pastor Mike Banas.

Pastor Banas says ‘Operation Egg Drop’ and other Community Life Easter giveaways are being done for a very specific reason. “We have a lot of people in our church who would just like to give back to the community and so we thought this would be a good way to give back,” he said.

‘Operation Egg Drop’ starts at 9:30 Saturday morning at Community Life Church, just north of McKinney High School.

This event is free and open to the public.
