Last weekend's "Trash Into Cash" sale, sponsored by Beyond Budgeting, was more than your typical garage sale. It was a chance for the community to shop for bargains while supporting the work of the Bluffton Community Assistance Program.

In all, over $80 was raised for the program and a large box of non-perishable food was donated at the sale.
