Booker T. Washington Garage Sale

Teachers, staff and parents at Booker T. Washington elementary are preparing for its garage sale tomorrow.
 
But, this garage sale's not motivated solely to get rid of old items---it's motivated by the students.
 
The goal is to raise enough money so that its 300 students can be sent home for Christmas break with a box of food, and books.
 
"Getting food boxes for the kids to compensate, or supplement, the meals that they're not getting since they're not in school," said student success coordinator, Chris Evans. "Usually they come and get a free breakfast and a lunch. Since they're not in school, mom, dad, grandma whoever has to compensate that price."
 
"We want to be able to give them something good to eat over the holiday's," parent Janis Waldon. "Something they can prepare themselves. We did pretty good last year. Everybody came out but we want more this year than we made last year."
 
The garage sale will be tomorrow from 7 A.M. to 1 P.M. in the Booker T. Washington gym.
