Helping hands across the United States reached out to people in need on Easter Sunday.

In Waverly, R.I., Dunn's Corners Community Church opened its doors to feed those who lost everything in the New England recent floods.

"I have got a bag of clothes and I am living out of my car," flood victim Carla Moody said. "I have 10 fingers, 10 toes and a really good meal and my family is here. I can't ask for anything more."

Waverly was one of the area's hit hardest cities after heavy rains sent the Pawcatuck River spilling over its banks.

Meanwhile, Union Gospel Mission in Portland, Utah also extended a warm hand of hospitality to the hungry this Easter, with more than 100 volunteers reaching out to the area's homeless residents.

"We just want to give our homeless friends a really fun and warm and friendly place to be for the holidays," said the Mission's Stacy Kean.

The church served more than 600 meals and gave the needy residents "hope totes" filled with soap, socks and other hygiene items.

"It can be very lonely to be out on the streets," Kean said. "So we want to just provide that holiday meal to show people love and compassion on the Easter holiday."
