Auburn Rescue Mission delivers Easter meals to needy families in Cayuga County
The Auburn Rescue Mission delivered a total of two hundred Easter meals and baskets to needy families in Cayuga County over the weekend.
Working for the mission, volunteers and staff members prepared and delivered 150 Easter meals and 50 Easter baskets to struggling families on the recently past Sunday. The sincere effort was part of the Auburn Rescue Mission to help families living in transitional housing complexes, hotels and other people in need.
Director James Breslin said a contingent of nearly one hundred volunteers and a dozen of staff members worked together to prepare the meals, which included pies, turkey, stuffing and sauce.
Speaking on the topic, Breslin said, “This is a big deal because when all you have to eat is a microwave to cook out of, to have any kind of hot meal is a blessing. Hunger has been a big issue for our program and, I think, our community.”
It was the fifth year in a row when the Auburn Rescue Mission prepared and delivered meals for the needy on Easter. The number of Easter meals prepared this year was nearly double the mission’s previous high of 82 meals.
For the next Easter, the Auburn Rescue Mission is aiming to get more people involved to prepare and deliver meals for the needy by encouraging them to donate in any way they can.
