A wealth of clothing and other items that were donated for victims of a fire earlier this month, but left unclaimed, still will be used help those who lost their homes in the March 16 blaze at a Carolina Forest area condominium community.
A two-day, large, indoor yard sale to benefit those victims will be held for its second day from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the X Gym at 568 George Bishop Parkway. Organizers of the sale -- which features a variety of items including shoes and furniture donated by area hotels – say the money raised will be used to help the fire victims.
Robbie Love, owner of the Gym, has donated space there as a collection point for donations since the fire. He said the amount of items that were collected exceeded expectations.
The United Way of Horry County set up a fund to benefit the victims and money from the yard sale will be added to that.
“We really need people to come because we have a lot of stuff,” said Irena Hrisgova, an employee at the facility.
“We probably have over 100 pairs of shoes.’’
Shoes sell for $1 a pair, and clothing prices range from $1-$5. Furniture prices vary.The sale is at the gym, which is near Beach Church and the former Hard Rock Park.
