CLEVELAND -- The St. Augustine Church and Hunger Center is in need of some help for this upcoming holiday weekend.
St. Augustine will be providing full Easter meals with all the trimmings, and is looking for volunteers to help deliver the meals to the homebound.
The director of the hunger center, Sister Corita Ambro, says it's important to make sure everyone is included, even if they can't make it out to one of the locations for the meal. "We're expecting a big crowd this weekend. We usually do. It's a little smaller at Easter than we usually are at Thanksgiving and Christmas, but it's a holiday, it's the resurrection of Christ and we want to be sure everybody gets a meal that day and feels like family because it's a family day," Ambro said.
St. Augustine is expecting to serve about 9,000 meals. The meals will be served from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday, April 1 at the following locations:
2486 W. 14th Street (Tremont neighborhood)
Mary Queen of Peace, 4223 Pearl Road
St. Colman Church, 2027 W 65th Street
