LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) -

A mountain of new and gently used items you didn't even know you needed will be up for sale in Longview this weekend as part of an annual charitable fundraising event.

First United Methodist Church in Longview is stockpiled with donated items for the annual Asbury House garage sale. The event benefits the Asbury House Child Enrichment Center to help low-income families with education for pre-school children.

Asbury House has been receiving donated items since around May.  

"We got a lot of good sporting goods stuff," said volunteer organizer Bill Cain. "Sporting goods, hunting, and fishing. We've got some high-dollar stuff, but it's good and we're pricing it right."

From furniture to bicycles to even antiques, the wide variety of items has helped Asbury in raising tens of thousands of dollars every year.

The Asbury House garage sale starts Friday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m., and Saturday again from 8 a.m. until noon.
