'It's all about being a good neighbor'

Posted: Updated:

An East Texas church is getting together to do their part in helping the Gregg County Community.

Mobberly Baptist Church in Longview is having a rummage sale to help Gregg County residents in their time of need.

"Whether it's selling a Santa Clause or a T-shirt over in the kids department I know that it's going to benefit somebody," says church volunteer, Melony Ralph.

"There is a lot of children's items strollers and stuff, kitchen items, video games, movies and electronics," says rummage sale coordinator, Greg Scobee.

Mobberly Baptist Church had their first rummage sale about two years ago.

A total of $24,000 was raised for their benevolence fund which helps Gregg County residents in their time of need

"It's just a blessing to know that what you're doing makes a difference. Instead of just talking about making a difference, or seeing something on the news and thinking 'Wow I wish I could do something about it' I feel like I'm out here and I'm doing something about it," says Ralph.

"If you have a need, you just call the church so you can find the time and days that you can come and talk to them. Say you have a $500 bill you need paid, we can't pay the whole thing, but we can pay a portion of it," says Scobee.

For these volunteers it's about helping their neighbor in a time of need.

"Come on out and whether you spend $1, $5, or $100 it all goes for your neighbor and it's all about being a good neighbor," says Ralph.

The sale will be Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Admission to get in Friday will be $1 and free on Saturday. Everything will be half priced on Saturday.
