FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) – Celebrating Easter with fellowship and sharing. Long lines greeted workers at the Fort Wayne Rescue Mission Sunday morning.
Mission staff as well as volunteers prepared 1,800 Easter meals this year, and we're told approximately 1,500 sat down to a hot meal.
The meal, which consisted of ham, yams, green beans and pie was free to anyone in the community, from the homeless to those who just didn't want to be alone this Easter holiday.
It’s also a rewarding experience for the 50 volunteers who stepped up to help prepare, and serve the meal.
“It gives them hope, which we provide to our guest, but especially it just renews the value of how important everyone in our community is. And it is a wonderful thing on this gorgeous Easter morning, that we can serve and help the community,” said Lynne Isenbarger, Volunteer Coordinator.
By the way, a church in Convoy, Ohio provided all the pies for Sunday’s Easter dinner.
