SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – For many, Easter is a time to bring people together and help the less fortunate.

After they delivered more than 150 Easter dinners to the elderly, disabled and homebound, the Springfield Rescue Mission volunteers served Easter dinner to the homeless and people in need of companionship.

Contributions made the meal possible; no one was turned away.

“Well it means you can sit with all of your friends from the street,” said Frances Stewart of Springfield. “I know a lot of street people, I go to most of the meals here.”

On Sunday the Open Pantry community services will feed hundreds of the less fortunate at the Springfield High School of Commerce. In addition to Easter Sunday, these agencies provide holiday meals on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.
