Washington County Harvest of Hope is having their third annual yard sale in Marietta to help low-income people and families who need assistance.

"We do this because we are generating funds so that we can run our program, which is to find more food that we can then pick up and deliver free of charge to pantries and other agencies who feed people," says Executive Director Karen Kumpf.

Kumpf says the yard sale is a huge help to those individuals who need it most.

She says you can't go somewhere and buy a shirt for 50 cents or a pair of pants for a dollar or two.

So they hope to have all the clothing sold by the time they wrap up the yard sale on Saturday.

"Most of them are here because they are looking for things to add to their wardrobe and things like furniture and house decorating items or dishes or things like that," Kumpf says.

Harvest of Hope has a refrigerated truck that goes out four days a week and the yard sale helps finance the cost of running the truck.

Every little bit counts to make a difference in the lives of people who are struggling to make ends meet.

The yard sale is still going on until 5 p.m. on Friday, May 3 and from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 4.
