The Charlotte Rescue Mission is asking people to donate homemade desserts so the group can help feed its guests on Easter Sunday.
The mission is collecting cakes, pies, cookies and other treats during its annual dessert drive. People may drop off desserts through Sunday morning at the mission on 907 W. First St., Charlotte.
“We want everyone who comes to the rescue mission on Easter to receive a real taste of home,” the Rev. Tony Marciano, the mission’s executive director, said in a statement.
People may drop off food between 8 a.m.-6 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and from 6-10:30 a.m. Sunday.
The mission will be open to the community from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, serving breakfast 6-8 a.m., lunch 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m., and showing movies and providing free use of cell phones during the day.
People will eat in a dining room set up to resemble a fine-dining restaurant with volunteers dressed in white shirts and black pants.
The mission provides a free, Christian residential program for people addicted to drugs or alcohol and who are predominantly homeless.
