Homeless men, women and children are invited to attend an Easter and Passover celebration at the Midnight Mission in downtown Los Angeles on Sunday morning.

The Easter Bunny will present homeless and underprivileged children with baskets full of candy and other treats, and a live band will play. The brunch begins at 10 a.m. at the mission on skid row.
