Generous Sydneysiders will today donate their time to give Easter eggs to homeless and needy families at The Exodus Foundation in Ashfield.
It’s an annual tradition at Sydney’s busiest soup kitchen where they prepare up to 800 meals every day. “Being poor and homeless shouldn’t mean you miss out on the best bits of Easter!” quipped Rev. Crews, CEO and founder of The Exodus Foundation.
In these troubled times, as a symbol of inter-faith solidarity, members of the Woollhara Jewish community’s Emanuel Synagogue will serve a special lunchtime meal as well. “It’s shows that religions can all come together to help the poor”, said Rev. Crews.
Before the lunch Rev. Bill Crews will also hold a special Easter Sunday church service for the homeless at the Uniting Church in Ashfield. Hundreds are expected to attend. “I often ask myself where Jesus would be: Amongst the splendour of the big churches or sharing time with the homeless? I’m pretty sure I know the answer”, said Rev. Crews.
