SHERMAN, TX -- Dozens give away old items in Grayson County to help an agency that helps the mentally ill and mentally challenged.

The Texoma Community Center, formerly known as MHMR, held a recycling fundraiser on Saturday, and Austin College students were among those helping.

This is the sixth year for the event and they took old computers, electronics, pottery, books -- just about anything except for TV sets and hazardous items.

"It's amazing how much stuff people do have at home that it's obsolete and needs to be gotten rid of, but we take good things also, workable things," says community relations director Paula Cawthon.

Cawthon says they work with a Garland company called Bubb Fundraising and took in $9,000 last year through this and other similar collection efforts, including at businesses and school districts. This year, their Denison event will be held on Apr. 12.
