For those people who may not have had a place to eat Easter dinner, the Huntington City Mission's doors were open to them.

More than100 people enjoyed a hot meal at the city mission's dining hall.  Though the number of people who attended was lower than normal, organizers think that it wasn't necessarily a bad thing.  Either way, they were pleased to serve the people who were there.

"It's wonderful to have that opportunity to give back to those who are in need," said Lynn Clagg with the city mission.

Several Marshall students were on hand to volunteer their time.
