Md. inmates to prepare charity turkeys
The Maryland Division of Correction says state prison inmates near Hagerstown are continuing their tradition of preparing turkeys for a charity Thanksgiving dinner in Baltimore.
Inmates were set to unload 350 frozen turkeys Friday from a tractor-trailer at the Maryland Correctional Institution-Hagerstown.
Agency officials say the birds will be thawed and prepared by inmates for the annual Bea Gaddy Thanksgiving Dinner.
The prison meat plant is part of Maryland Correctional Enterprises, which employs more than 2,000 inmates and had sales last year of more than $52 million.
