The American Legion Auxiliary Post 202 in Wichita Falls encouraged people to shop until they dropped today to give back to the community.

The post hosted it's second annual garage sale today.

All items for sale were donated from people all over the Wichita Falls area.

Items for sale included arts and crafts, jewelry, tools, clothing, baked goods and much more.

All of the proceeds from today's sale will go towards Hospice of Wichita Falls, the food bank and other local charities.

"This is one way that you can get more of the community involved. If you have a big sale like this more community does come out then if you come to a small dinner or something like that," organizer Beverly Doyle says. 

Doyle says some of the funds will also help the legion put on it's Gold Star mother's tea in September and all of the funds for that event will also benefit several local charities.
