LOS ANGELES, March 26 (UPI) -- The Rev. Maurice Chase, former assistant to the president of Loyola Marymount University, plans to give away money Easter Sunday on Los Angeles' skid row.

The skid row activist plans to "give out" $15,000 to poor and homeless people in Los Angeles at the Salvation Army Mission.

The largest amounts of money will be given mothers with children, and some $100-bills will be distributed to the poorest and very neediest, spokesmen said.

The Skid Row Ministry is financially supported by Mrs. Bob Hope, Mrs. Frank Sinatra, Bob Newhart, Eli Broad, Mrs. Henry Mancini, Georgia Frontiere, Vin Scully and others.
