LOS ANGELES, April 11 (UPI) -- The Rev. Maurice Chase gave out $15,000 in $1 bills to the poor and homeless on Los Angeles' Skid Row Easter Sunday.

The Roman Catholic priest, who was once the assistant to the president of Loyola Marymount University, handed out the money at the Fred Jordan Mission.

Chase said in a statement that larger amounts of the Easter gift was given to mothers with children; and a number of $100 bills go to the poorest and very neediest.

The Skid Row ministry is supported financially by the widow of Bob Hope, the widow of Frank Sinatra, Bob Newhart, Eli Broad, the widow of Henry Mancini, Georgia Frontiere, Vin Scully and many others, according to Chase.
