TYLER, TX (KLTV) - More than 35 families came together Saturday to benefit some East Texas charities.  Members of Leadership Tyler held a garage sale Saturday morning.  Money raised will go to Meals on Wheels, The Salvation Army, P.A.T.H. and the East Texas Food Bank.  Event organizers say the community donated everything from clothes to furniture to books.

"It's important, I think it's necessary for everyone to do what they can, not everyone can donate money, you know the economy is kind of hard right now, so we feel like this is a way to give cash to organizations, that might not get it otherwise," said event organizer Rebecca Luke.  Their hard work paid off.  The proceeds from the garage sale totaled at more than $2,000.
