KNOXVILLE (WATE) -  For the 100th year, the Empty Stocking Fund provided a little extra cheer for families in East Tennessee during the holiday season.

On Saturday, volunteers distributed thousands of food baskets, toys and books at Chilhowee Park's Jacob Building.

Some of the gifts were also delivered to those who were not able to make it to the event.

Over the past week, close to 1,000 volunteers helped to set up the final distribution day.

The Empty Stocking Fund is organized by the Knoxville News Sentinel.
