Pantry Need: Potatoes

We know, it’s not a new month yet but our kitchen staff have asked for a special request: potatoes!

We use a lot of potatoes for the multiple meals we serve the community each day. Any donation of potatoes will be greatly appreciated by our kitchen staff. Also, we’ll always welcome any donation of potatoes at any point during the year!

If you’d like to donate please drop off potatoes to our Administrative Office during business hours (M-F 8:15am-11:30am and 12:15-4pm) or contact us to schedule a time that works for you. If you’d prefer shopping online please use 125 N. Prospect St, Hagerstown, MD 21740 for our delivery address.Thank you for caring and sharing with your community!!!

You Say Potato…

We want to send a big “THANK YOU” to the men’s group at Hope Hill United Methodist Church in Frederick, MD for their donation of potatoes to The Hope Center!

Each year, the men’s group at Hope Hill UMC sponsors the “Feed the Hungry Potato Drive”. The drive took place on March 31, 2012. The group then distributes the potatoes, free of charge, to area food banks.

This is the second year that we’ve received potatoes from this wonderful group. This year they gave us 25 -50# bags of potatoes!! That’s a lot of potatoes!

This generous gift will help keep our food costs down while also providing good food for our residents and all our daily guests!

Thank you, Hope Hill UMC men’s group, for caring so much for those in need! And thank you for thinking of us!
