ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - Saturday night was a time to make the homeless population in Roanoke feel special.

The Least of These Ministry held its fourth annual Dining with Dignity, where over 100 people attended this year’s dinner.

The rain did not stop people from coming to Elmwood Park for a meal that included a hot entrée, salad and dessert.

Volunteers waited the tables taking orders wearing black pants and white shirts. They served meals donated by Outback, Carrabba’s and Olive Garden.

Both volunteers and the homeless who came out added their handprint to a collage, symbolizing we’re all people no matter the circumstances.
