Girls Show Leadership; Set Up Yard Sale to Benefit Northwest Harvest

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, WA. -- Not every yard sale is what it seems, at least not for Brittnay and her sister Annabelle. 

The 15 and 11 year old girls are hosting a yard sale and food drive benefiting Northwest Harvest. For weeks they called friends and family members and got all the items you see here donated. For the girls, it's just a way of giving back.

"It makes me very happy," Brittnay Newman said. "It makes me do something. Usually I'm just sitting there on my computer. Might as well do something for others."

The girls hope to raise a thousand dollars and 12-thousand pounds of food. The last day of the yard sale will be Sunday. You can find them on South 48th Avenue.
