CORPUS CHRISTI - The homeless and those in need were treated to a hardy Easter meal today at the Mother Teresa Shelter right by city hall. The shelter partnered with Mission Church and St. John's Church to put on the event.
40 volunteers helped, others donated more than $800 in food; Mother Teresa Shelter also received over $800 in food donations. The organizations estimate they fed more than 200 people today.
"This is just about showing God's love for people and showing that we love each other," said volunteer Donetta Alvarado.
"There was barbeque, roast beef with sausage, green beans, corn, bread pie, you know, candies, cakes, cookies,' said Billy Griffin, a grateful meal recipient.
There was also $300 just in candy donations.
