The Hope Center for Kids serves hundreds of people Thanksgiving dinner

Sixty pies, 20 turkeys and 150 kilos of potatoes were served to hundreds of subway families on Thursday night. The free Thanksgiving dinner was hosted by the Hope Center for Kids. At the Hope Center for Kids on Thursday night, they served blessings, not just food. Single dad EJ Smith says it means everything he can get a hot free meal with his kids. “Just a blessing. That’s a blessing from God,” Smith said. Grandfather Robert Anderson says that especially in tough economic times right now anything free helps a lot. “You know it’s a tough time these days, but there’s still so much to be thankful for, so we’re counting our blessings and having a great time,” said Anderson. But he says it’s so much more than free food. “It’s just such a blessing to be able to get together with others. And we just really enjoy this, you know?’ Anderson said. The center’s executive director, Dejaun Reddick, says that’s exactly why they’re doing this. “All people. It doesn’t matter how old you are. It doesn’t matter where you come from. You need time to spend time together. And usually a hot meal will do the trick,” Reddick said.
