An act of giving helped to make people's everyday lives easier today, as The Calvary Christian Church put on their third Annual Giveaway .
The giveaway, which was a lot like a garage sale without price tags, offered free items to the community.
The doors to the church opened at 8:00a.m., but people had already been waiting in line since five. Thousands of books, toys, and clothes were available for anyone who needed the items.
"Why do we do this every year? Because the need is there. And the need seems to be increasing rather than decreasing, im afraid, in our economic climate right now," said Steven Doyle, Calvary Christian Church Senior Pastor. "One of the things we've seen that's kind of cool is that people who received last year...Some of them actually brought things this year to donate to it."
All of the items given away today were donations from Calvary Christian Church members and the public.
