Dozens of volunteers from a group that represents Manitoba real estate agents and brokers served the crowd.

CBC's Kiran Dhillon reported that many of the people she talked to said if it wasn't for Siloam Mission, they'd have nowhere to go for Easter.

She said people told her the annual event gives them a sense of community and hope.
