KARM hosting annual Thanksgiving dinner


KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Knox Area Rescue Ministries is preparing for its annual Thanksgiving dinner for the homeless and needy.

KARM is holding its Thanksgiving Celebration event on Thursday, serving meals in the KARM chapel and dining hall from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The event, in partnership with Rothchild Catering, has been a fixture on Thanksgiving for over 27 years. Rothchild begins preparing early for the event.

Over 1,000 hungry and homeless people are estimated to attend this year's event. Anyone in need is invited to attend.

The traditional dinner includes turkey, ham, dressing, potatoes, vegetables and a slice of pie. The Knoxville Convention Center has cooked 100 turkeys for the event. Over 160 people are volunteering.

During the event, U.S. Cellular will also be on hand to provide free phone calls to anyone who would like to reach out to family and friends.
