One way they dothat? Through their annual Proceeds for Povertyevent. These donated itemswill be sold to benefit others. Jonathan Grooms, Global Partners inPeace: We started to go throughour own home -just looking at the items we have and say -what can we live without, so thatothers may live. And, it's just amazing witha dollar a day, we can impact the life of a child and as wecombine our efforts - even a 10-dollar item that people would bring to Proceeds for Poverty we're able to build a clean water well for a village thathas no clean water at all.This year's event is held at the old Haverty's building near Valley View Mall. The group iscollecting items like furniture, appliances and housewares- thisweek from Monday through Wednesday. Those items will then be sold this Thursday through Saturday.
