A church’s congregation helps out their community through giving.

North Terrace Church of Christ held their annual Great Giveaway. Items included TV’s, washers and dryers, lots of clothes and house hold items. The church had a large turnout, which was to be expected for their 12th year of the giveaway.

"They recognize the time of year to be ready for it. We actually have people that sleep out in their cars overnight out on the road so they can be the first ones in and get something that they anticipate," said North Terrace Minister Bill Meaige.

The congregation enjoys donating their items and doesn’t see bringing the giveaway to an end any time soon.

"Every year, we keep thinking that we’re going to run short of items because eventually people’s garage gets cleared out or their basement get cleaned up, this year I was a little concerned the first day or so of setting things up but by today we had just as much stuff as we’ve ever had," said Meaige

Any items that are not claimed by the end of the day are donated to Goodwill.
