Minister and community leader Rev. Mozel Sanders began his life in Indianapolis in 1945, where he worked at a foundry during the day and preached at a local church at night. In 1959 he became the pastor of the Mount Vernon Missionary Baptist Church and served there until his death in 1988.

Sanders hosted a daily radio program and was the founder of a national job training program. He started a Thanksgiving dinner event to feed less fortunate families. The Mozel Sanders Thanksgiving Day Dinner continues to live on, bringing together hundreds of volunteers and serving thousands of meals each Thanksgiving Day.
