Kind-hearted Janet Easley has been serving Thanksgiving dinner to thousands of needy people in central Indiana every holiday for the last 38 years.

Indianapublicmedia.org writes that Janet Easley has welcomed everyone to the Turner Family Thanksgiving Meal, which will be held at three locations across Indianapolis in 2019.

Easley has invited everybody including children and parents especially single parents going through hard times.

She will be serving "Turkey, potatoes or mashed potatoes, corn and green beans.''

Easley doesn’t do it alone; she gets help from 200 volunteers, plus inmates from the Indiana Women’s Prison who cook the turkeys.

Easley fed nearly ten thousand people last year and she expects close to the same number this year.

''I feel content, when I know that I did something to make someone happy,'' Easley is quoted by Indianapublicmedia.org.

Meanwhile, multi-talented young Ghanaian disc jockey star and artiste, Erica Tandoh, famed as DJ Switch, has taken pride in her senior brother, who she simply identified as Theo.
