By  | 

ISOM, Ky. (WYMT)- Connie Cook from Isom said she often receives donations of clothes, books, and sometimes food from a distant relative in Virginia.

"If I don't do this, it will go to a landfill," said Cook.

During yard sale season, Cook sets out many items that are "free to take."

"I just like to help people," said Cook.

She said many people come to her yard sale looking for school clothes for their children.

On Thursday, close to 30 people came to take items.

"Everybody that comes is friendly, and there were 29 people. They come from all, Whitesburg, Pine Top, Knott County, Hazard, Jenkins, everywhere," said Cook.

Cook advertises her free yard sales on Facebook and plans to have more in the future.
