Paragould business raising money for local organization

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A Region 8 organization is getting help from Belk in Paragould.

The annual "Belk Charity Sale" kicks off Saturday morning at 6.

A $5 ticket will go toward the Agape House, along with $5 off your Belk purchase.

The Agape house works to help cure women of their drug addictions. "The classes help you deal with things you haven't been dealing with in your addiction and helps you grow up when you weren't grown up before." said Agape House Resident Elisa Tibbitt.

The Agape House runs on donations and provides treatment to women through support, classes, housing and transportation.

The first 100 people through the door  will get an additional scratch off card valuing anywhere from $5 to $1,000.

The early morning sale will not only save you some money, but help a charitable organization.

"We need all the support and all the donations we can get to help more women.  And there's just such a great need for women who suffer from addictions that there's just not enough help out there to be offered." said Olivia Breckenridge with the Agape House.
