It's no secret that in Logan County when someone puts out the word that they need help, people dig deep and come up with what is needed.

Right after the beginning of the year, the Humane Society of Logan County started letting everyone know they were going to participate in the Route 66 townwide garage sales and needed donations of merchandise to sell.

What they got was almost unbelievable. According to HSLC director Ellen Burbage, by Friday the beer tent at the Logan County Fairgrounds was very nearly standing room only, with almost every inch of space being taken up with items for sale.

On Friday, the organization saw a huge turnout of shoppers and brought in over $3,000. 

Saturday there was another huge turnout of shoppers, leaving Burbage to hope for another great day of sales.

All the money raised through the HSLC garage sale will go directly to supporting the work of the Logan County shelter.

Compared with Saturday, Burbage said the place looked empty, but there was still plenty for shoppers to see and buy.

Free face painting was also a part of the day.

Paw Print balloons were also a big hit.

Shoppers were large in number most of the day and had plenty of bargains to choose from.
