WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

For more than 20 years Verla Thomason has been volunteering to make the McPherson Community Thanksgiving Dinner possible. Thomason said that the dinner was started by a local woman who didn't want to spend the holiday alone.

Over the years, it's grown so much it had to be moved to the town's community building. Organizers said on average they serve more than 800 visitors and nearly the same amount at Christmas.

"It's touching people's lives and its outreach that really inspires you. And we have people who tell us I've never been to anything like this. and I'll be back," said Thomason.
