The Union Mission in Fairmont aims to make holidays special for everyone in Marion County.

Easter Sunday is one of the mission's biggest holidays, feeding nearly 500 people.

Due to early morning church services it is also the hardest holiday to get volunteers.

The Mission said it is in desperate need of volunteers this weekend to deliver Easter meals to those in need.

"We serve more outside delivery then we do in house," said George Batten, of the Union Mission. "It's important not only to the person who is home with nothing and can't get here as it is for the person who is fairly close and has the ability to get here."

If you would like to volunteer on Easter Sunday, call 304-363-0300.
