TORRINGTON — For Lisa Hageman, charity and caring for others in time of need came naturally.
“I grew up in Goshen, and when you live in a small town, there is a sense of neighbors helping neighbors,” said Hagemen, the food service director of the Torrington Community Soup Kitchen. “My dad (William) was selectman and the fire chief, and when there would be a house fire or someone was sick, I was taught and shown to help your neighbor when they were in time of need. That stayed with me, and I brought that to the soup kitchen.”
