Charity Donation Drive

Kiwanis volunteer Mark Lewis needs a bigger truck...

"At this site alone we have enough clothing to fill this trailer behind me ..that doesn't count the furniture or the food.just clothing!" says Mark

Lewis and more than 100 volunteers sort through donations given to them by the community...The crew plans on donating house hold items to more than seven charity organizations.

"Everything that gets donated gets used, nothing is going to go to waste.. It's kind of a best fit scenario,....this week will sort through everything and make sure the appropriate organization gets it and makes good use of it."says Mark

He says hes offering tax rebates as a donation incentive...and while that promotion is off to a slow start, Mark says he didn't expect such a generous outpouring from the community so far...

" They are giving out of the goodness of their hearts,, at their own will and it's been incredible, i don't have words for it, it's been incredible"
