As we enter the giving season, one church in Montgomery County says God inspired them to sacrifice their Thanksgiving morning to assure everyone gets a warm meal.
Calvary Pentecostal Ministries started hosting a free Thanksgiving meal for Gaithersburg residents five years ago.
Now, volunteers with various faith backgrounds devote four hours on Thanksgiving, preparing nearly 20 turkeys, seven hams, and dozens of other goodies, at Gaithersburg Elementary School.
“We want to make sure that we always keep an inclusive environment of people who want to come together and give back and serve, not just on the holidays but year-round,” said Aubrey Alton, Volunteer.
“If we want to show God that we really love Him, let’s show him that we love him through loving who he loves,” said WesleyTaylor, Calvary Pentecostal Ministries.
“Everybody can now bond together as one, and that is the most beautiful thing,” said Carol Taylor, Calvary Pentecostal Ministries.
Local grocery stores and organizations donate food and money to the annual event.
