If you've joined the ugly sweater trend this holiday season then you'd fit right in at Tuesday's ugly sweater brunch.

Although the trend is gaining steam this isn't Mission Change's first time around with the idea. Tuesday's event made six years and it's a tradition that has continued to grow each year.

Mt. Zion praise dancers performed for attendees, brunch was served, There was plenty of singing, and folks in need could even take advantage of donations.

"It has grown from about 100 volunteers to 300 volunteers, we're in a new space this year because of that, and with our neighbors in need coming in we always have about 300 people," said Organizer LaDonna Urick.

 Mission change has a partnership with the Junior League and wants everyone to know that the deadline to drop off coats for the Winter warm-up drive will be extended into January.
