NASHVILLE, Tenn. The Nashville Ladies of Charity has been gearing up for its big annual three-day garage sale to help those less fortunate.

"There's about 75 ladies that come in and out everyday and they work on cleaning everything up and making sure it works and pricing it," said Carolyn Warden, garage sale chairman.

The garage sale will serve to help those less fortunate pay their rent, utilities and buy food.

People like James Mason Junior. "I got at least six bags of groceries," said Mason. "If I went to the grocery store and bought this I would imagine I would be out of 60 bucks."

Mason said he has been coming to the Ladies of Charity for the past two years

"They stepped up and didn't ask too many questions," said Mason. "They made sure I had the proper paper work. I felt like I'm going to start crying."

Mason said he's on a fixed income and can't always afford groceries. The welfare agency depends in part on the Nashville Ladies of Charity Stuff Galore garage sale.

Last year, Mason was just one of about 2,800 adults supplied with food.

"Sometimes I can just buy my own groceries, but when its time for me to come down here they're here," said Mason.

The Stuff Galore Sale will run June 13 - 15 a the Ladies Of Charity Center located 2216 State Street in Nashville.
