Beckley Dream Center holds yard sale for a good cause

BECKLEY (WVVA) – People from across Southern West Virginia came to the Beckley Dream Center's Indoor Yard Sale to shop the good deals for a good cause.

"[I bought] toys for the kids and books," says Jill Bachert of Cyclone.

"We have tools.  We have TVs.  We have cabinets that go up in your bathroom, dolls, shoes, toys everywhere," says Linda Carr at the Dream Center.

Carr says funds from the yard sale will go directly to the Fish and Loaves Ministry, benefiting the hungry, homeless and less fortunate in the area.

"It's a good cause that helps other people," says Bachert after she finished shopping.  "We benefit getting stuff for the kids, and they benefit getting the money, so it's a win, win."

In the depths of winter, even a little donation can bring warmth to someone in need.

"People don't have the funds, especially in the winter when it's cold and the heating bills are high.  We had a lady in yesterday who needed help with her gas bill, her power bill.  It's just an awesome ministry," says Carr.

No matter how small the purchase, Linda says every little bit helps the Dream Center help others right in your own community.

"We just don't realize how fortunate we are.  We just really don't.  We are blessed, and God is good to all of us, and this is a way we can give back to the community by helping them with their needs," says Carr.

The Yard Sale is open Friday, March 1 and Saturday, March 2 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
