13th Annual Free Stuff Giveaway

13th Annual Free Stuff Giveaway

by Stephanie Hube on August 9, 2014

Very few things in life are free, but North Terrace Church of Christ tried to change that a little today.

From 9:00AM to around 11:00AM, people lined up at the church’s 13th annual Free Stuff Give Away. Baby clothes, furniture, appliances and everything in-between was sold, for free.

"There is a lot of needs in our community here, and we want to be about meeting each one of those needs one at a time. And this is one way we can do that " said Lead Minister, Matt Mehaffey.

Donations are taken year round in preparation for this day. Items that are no longer useful to some may help make someone else’s life a little bit better. Mehaffey told us about one of his favorite stories from this years event.

"We had one lady who said, ‘I’ve never owned a washer and dryer before, and now i have one’. "

The event was open to everyone in the community. Mehaffey said that the church is just blessed to get to be a blessing to others.
