The Los Angeles Mission will make a difference for the homeless this Easter – with a little help from celebrity friends.
The Mission will serve 3,000 meals, provide Easter baskets with toys for children, and wash the feet of the homeless on Good Friday. Why feet washing? Easter Week foot washing is a Christian tradition – memorializing that Jesus washed the feet of his disciples the night before he was crucified. Many who are on the streets seldom have normal loving human contact – and this outreach of food, foot washing with podiatric care and new shoes is a way of inviting them to learn about the Mission’s services, including its long term program of restoration – in order to get off the streets permanently. The Los Angeles Christian Health Center uses this opportunity to address the foot problems suffered by many on the streets of Skid Row.
Scheduled to attend the event at the LA Mission on 5th and Wall Street are Nora Zethetner (Grey’s Anatomy), Haylie Duff, Orson Bean (Desperate Housewives), Alley Mills (The Bold and the Beautiful), Stephanie Pratt (The Hills), Lauren Storm (I Love You Beth Cooper), Boo Boo Stewart (Twilight-Eclipse), Erin Cummings (Spartacus), Eden Sher (The Middle), Damien Dante Wayans, Kate Linder (The Young and the Restless), Judi Evans (Days of our Lives), Peggy McCay (Days of Our Lives), Tiffany Thornton (Sonny with a Chance), Anya Monzikova (Ironman II), Necar Zadegan (24), Suzanne Whang (House Hunters), Gregory Michael (Greek), Jessica Sutta (Pussycat Dolls), Gale Harold (Desperate Housewives), Sherri Saum (The Deep End), Kamar de los Reyes (One Life to Live), Sterling Beaumon (Lost), Tania Gunadi (Aaron Stone), Katherine Boecher (The Spy Next Door), Lukas Behnken (Not Another Teen Movie), Kristen Ruhlin (Isabella’s Kisses), Edwin Hodge (Mental), Brandon Molale (Dodgeball), Eve Mauro (The Grind), Patrick Muldoon (Starship Troopers), Ragan Brooks (Hollywood Homicide), Tom Schanley (Castle) and more.
