MIAMI (AP) - The Miami Rescue Mission is making Easter brighter for some families.

Thousands of Miami's poorest were given a hot meal and medical care to celebrate Easter.

The Miami Rescue Mission served over 2,500 Thanksgiving Meals at parties in three different South Florida locations on Good Friday. Participants were also given haircuts, access to showers and foot care from podiatry students at Barry University. Students also volunteered to wash participants' feet.

Over 500 Easter baskets were also given to the children who attended.
