The most visible project that People Loving People performs is the annual free Thanksgiving Dinner.  This has been ongoing for fourteen years and in 2016 we fed over 3200 meals in upper East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia. 

A branch of the 501(c)3 non profit Four Square, Inc. organization, People Loving People utilizes hundreds of volunteers and thousands of dollars of donations to pull off the annual Thanksgiving Dinner. 

In 2016  we served over:  1600 pounds of turkey; 600 pounds of ham; 1500 hundred pounds of green beans and corn; 700 pounds of mashed potatoes; 600 pounds of sweet potatoes; 300 pounds of cranberry sauce; over 3000 servings of dressing; 20 gallons of turkey gravy and 15 gallons of ham gravy; over 3000 rolls; 1000 slices of pumpkin pie and hundreds of desserts. 

Any left over food was picked up by Of One Accord to be used in their Community Food Program and reports were that over 200 more meals were served using what they received!

 If you are interested in working on the Thanksgiving Day dinner call 423-345-3743 to make arrangements.

If you would like to arrange transportation to the meal or want to have a meal delivered to your home, please call 423-500-1024

If you would like to make a donation to help support this ambitious endeavor you may send your contribution to Four Square, Inc., c/o People Loving People, P.O. Box 35, Rogersville, TN  37857.  In the memo portion of your check please write ‘Thanksgiving’.
