NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – There will be a big push Thursday to help clothe, feed, and encourage those who are homeless in Nashville.

It’s called Gobble Gobble Give, and this is the fourth year they’ve held their annual event.

Last year, almost 3,000 people were served.

How it works is anyone who can or is willing to give just brings the items to Piranha’s on Third Avenue in downtown Nashville at 10 a.m. They need things like Thanksgiving dishes already heated, five small toiletries, clothing, and blankets.

If all you have to offer is a helping hand, they always need volunteers, too.

“With all the negativity going on right now, you know, people gathering in the street for negative reasons or positive reasons, you never know… we really need to gather as a community to actively help friends and neighbors on the streets,” said organizer Frankie Lynn.

Meal prep and packaging is the big job, but they also need people to help coordinate and provide transportation.
