For more than a dozen years now, the Kingston Police Department has been spearheading an effort to provide Thanksgiving meals to needy families. That tradition continued on Monday at Victory Baptist Church.

“As long as there’s a need in Roane County, we’re going to continue to help Roane County people,” Kingston Police Department Chief Jim Washam said. “This is not just for Kingston, even though it’s Kingston churches, the Kingston community and Kingston Police Department. We help all of Roane County.”
