Great story about a great lady!

The assembly line is up and running at Anna Schwass’ Amherst home where she and her friends are busy making more than 1200 Easter baskets for U.S. troops serving overseas.

“They sacrifice a lot and their families sacrifice a lot, and they don’t have the money to send stuff to them, shipments like that. They probably barely have enough to send stuff to the one person that’s out there,” said Schwass, whose brother is an Air Force pilot.

Friends and relatives come to her house at least once a week to help pack everything up.

“Whether people agree or disagree with the war. That’s fine. But we need to support our people over there. These guys and girls give their all, give their best, and they give their lives, so whatever we can do to make their lives a little easier for them we’ll do,” said Elizabeth Reitter.

 Schwass makes and sends the baskets using her own money. Shipping costs around $1200. At Christmas time, Schwass sends trees complete with decorations.
