Hope Center delivers Thanksgiving meals
Sue and Dan Thornton spent part of Thursday morning making a lot of gravy in the Hope Center kitchen in Hagerstown.
“We decided this is how we wanted to spend our Thanksgiving,” Sue said.
The Hope Center is a faith-based organization that provides a variety of services, from food to drug and alcohol programs to a shelter for homeless men.
On a typical Thanksgiving, the center hosts between 250 and 300 people for a free, sit-down, family-style dinner with turkey, potatoes and all the trimmings. …
The Thorntons and some two dozen other volunteered on Thursday, Shank said.
Sue Thornton said she has helped out at the Hope Center in other roles from time to time.
“This is the first time I’ve been in the kitchen this deep,” she said.
The Thorntons live in Smithsburg. Dan is pastor of the Maranatha Brethren Church on Jefferson Street.
“There, I’m the pastor,” he said as he stirred gravy.
“Here, she’s the boss.”
