West LTRC hosts garage sale

Posted:
WEST - It's a common practice to go to a weekend garage sale, but one in particular was held for a good cause. The West Long Term Recovery Center hosted a garage sale Saturday before closing down one of it's small warehouses.

The LTRC had shelves full off items that were donated after the April 17, 2013 explosion. Clothes, diapers, household items and toys lined the shelves on the small warehouse.

The organization sold what they could Saturday and will donate all proceeds to the west victim's assistance fund.

Executive Director of the West Texas Foundation, Suzanne Hack, says the closing of the warehouse serves as an important benchmark of progress.

She says they needed to clear out the shelves so they can focus on a new phase of the city's recovery.

"We've been meeting with clients. We've been pushing out as many of these items as we can,” says hack. “we've started some other programs for example we've partnered with Salvation Army to provide new furniture and household items to people who are moving into their homes as construction finishes up on new homes."

The warehouse will be used to store construction materials which are being used to rebuild homes and the city.

All of the left over items that weren't sold were donated to the Salvation Army and other charities to help with other disaster relief efforts.
