NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – For almost 30 years, Gerry Searcy has bought and cooked enough to feed more than 1,000 people on Thanksgiving.
The event provides meals for the city’s elderly who not only appreciate the hot meal but also the time they spend with the people who deliver the food.
The meals were assembled Thursday morning at Assumption Catholic Church in Germantown.
It all began in 1987 when Searcy and her son Keith started with just a dozen plates of food.
Keith has since passed away, and Searcy lost another just last year, but she keeps going, as do the other volunteers who spend every Thanksgiving helping.
At the end of the day more than 2,000 people will taste the labor of their love.
