The annual community wide garage sale hosted by Lufkin's Etech is not only expected to be bigger this year, but better.

"It's going to benefit three nonprofit organizations here in Lufkin - one being the Humane Society. We're also working with the Family Crisis Center of East Texas and Angelina Beautiful Clean," said Etech Human Resources Manager, Alana Culpepper. "We still have reserved spots available if anyone would still like to come out and reserve a spot."

All the proceeds will go directly to the Humane Society, and item donations will be accepted by the Family Crisis Center.

"Angelina Beautiful Clean will come and help us recycle used and reduced items [and] kind of helping us know about all those things," Culpepper said. "We're really excited about this event. It's going to be huge, and it's going to be awesome and it's just a good way to bring in the community and make a remarkable difference in everybody's lives."

The event is on Saturday, Sept. 27 from 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Culpepper said if items are still being sold after 2 p.m., they will continue on. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased at Etech at 106 N. John Redditt Dr.

"I'm most excited about bringing all the people together in the community and also being able to give back to all these nonprofit organizations and allow Etech to be able to help them," Culpepper said. "We're like the third party vendor to bringing everybody together, and that's so exciting to get to be able to be a part of that. We're excited to be able to host it and to bring everybody together as one big community family."
