ROME- Whether you're talking Utica or Rome, the goal of the Rescue Mission in each city is the same, to help those in need. On Easter Sunday, the Rome Rescue Mission served a plethora of food to those who were in need.
“It is the biggest holiday for us as it is for the risen savior,” said Executive Director Matt Miller.
The Rescue Mission served hundreds of warm meals, all with the help of numerous community volunteers.
“We are going to do about 150 deliveries, and then our traditional Easter meal,” said Miller.
The brunch consisted of eggs, bacon, french toast, doughnuts and much more. Following the brunch was an Easter Egg Hunt, a worship service, and a classic Easter dinner.
“It is really just a special day, it means a lot to our community and those we help,” said Miller. “It really is special.”
