WAUSAU (WAOW)- Spending a holiday alone can be depressing. That's why a group of volunteers donated their time to make sure as many people as possible had a special Easter.
Wausau Mine delivered hot meals on Sunday.
Terri Marten was one of the drivers. She says, "It's a day of giving and spending time with those you love and unfortunately there are people out there that don't have people with them, so we are there to help them out."
Marten and other volunteers made Easter special for those in need. Organizers say they delivered over 500 dinners to the greater Wausau area.
After deliveries, the Mine hosted a free Easter dinner for the community. Chuck Brod, one of the organizers, says this tradition was started 22 years ago. Brod explains, "Nobody had an Easter dinner, so Ron Wage, the original owner of the Wausau Mine, said let's put this together, for the community, and utilize the facility we have, and utilize the volunteers we have here and we put it together and it's been a great success ever since"
Brod estimates over 200 people showed up on Sunday.
