On a typical Saturday morning, you will probably be sleeping in. But not for Key Club.

On April 28, Key Club members woke up early and were at Liberty by 6:30 a.m. for the yard sale that started at 7 a.m. About 3,000-4,000 items were donated to the yard sale. At first, not a lot of people showed up because no one knew about it. So to get people’s attention, a couple of Key Club members went outside to advertise about the yard sale and it worked.

Ms. Borders, the Key Club sponsor, came up with the yard sale when Key Club heard about Mr. Peggs’ son, Drew, who was born six weeks prematurely.

“Key Club helps the youth in the community and Drew fit our motto for Key Club,” Borders said. “It’s our way to help Mr. Peggs with his medical expenses.”

The money garnered from both the yard sale and the miracle minute held at Mr. LHS on Friday night, was presented to Mr. Peggs on Monday during seventh hour by Key Club sponsors, Ms. Borders and Mr. Barker, Key Club president and vice president,  juniors Mikayla Bowman and Christian Tebeau, as well as StuCo president and vice president, juniors Marlee Doniff and Hunter Perkins.

Key Club raised more than $540 from the yard sale. Mr. Peggs was very much appreciative of the money.

“It really touched my life and my wife,” Peggs said. “I’m about to cry.”

The donated items that were left from the yard sale were donated to the VA.
