BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - While families and friends gather together for special Easter Sunday celebrations dozens of volunteers are coming together to bring happiness and hope to those less fortunate.
The Mission at Kern County is celebrating its annual Easter dinner, bringing a full set of delicacies to more than 300 people.
Volunteers have spent countless hours helping prepare for this very special meal.
"We just want them to know ... that they're loved," said the Community Outreach Director, Jamie Durham. "We want them to celebrate in the same way we all get to celebrate outside of the mission."
Durham said invitations to this gratifying day are still open to those who wish to celebrate.
"We want them to be a part of our family, part of our community and share in this Easter meal."
