Also live entertainment including a Passion Play will be enacted by residents of the Mission. Mission Hope purple bags filled with hygiene products will be distributed to all guests.

Rev. Ronald Brummitt, President of the Miami Rescue Mission/ Broward Outreach Centers said of the upcoming outreach, “It is a privilege and a blessing during the Easter/Passover Season to be able to help provide meals and to help those in our community who need it the most. We want our homeless and needy families to know that they are not forgotten and that we love them, as well as,[we] thank all of our donors and volunteers who help us make this wonderful day an awesome celebration for those that otherwise would have nothing, or very little for the Easter/Passover Season.”
