The Crossroads Museum is banking on those kind of stuffed animals to raise funds for the facility at the Historic Corinth Depot. A scented stuffed animal comes in each Easter basket the museum is selling in time for the holiday.
"We throughout this would be a good fundraiser for the museum," said executive director Brandy Steen. "Our goal in to sell 20 baskets."
Each special basket will contain either a rabbit, turtle, owl or bear stuffed animal, stuffed animal scent pack, king-size candy bar, Crossroads Museum color changing ruler, choice of boy or girl toy, bottle of bubbles and an Easter egg with a surprise inside.
Scent pack options are baby powder, vanilla or tropical. Buyers also have an option of either a Kit-Kat, Reece's or M&M's candy bar.
"A basket is on display here at the museum if anyone would like an idea on what they look like," added the director.
Payment is required when baskets are ordered. Cost is $40 if the stuffed animal choice is a rabbit. If a rabbit is chosen, $6.50 of the total will go to the March of Dimes imbornto campaign. The campaign helps moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies allowing babies the chance to do something great.
Cost of remaining baskets are $35.
Order forms can be picked up at the Crossroads Museum at 221 North Fillmore Street. Checks should be payable to the Crossroads Museum. Cash or credit cards are also accepted. All orders must be turned at the museum by 4 p.m. on Friday, March 28.
