He's been doing this for years, but Bobby Brunner still can't believe how many donations come through the door.
The York City activist speaks with an enthusiasm usually reserved for children.
"These trailers just fill up," he said. "There's so much clothes and furniture and TVs."
In what's quickly becoming a York tradition, Brunner and his supporters will be distributing food and household goods to anyone and everyone who shows up at the United Way, 800 E. King St., on Saturday for help.
The latest Neighbors Helping Neighbors giveaway kicks off with entertainment at 10 a.m. Starting at noon, on a first-come, first-served basis, families can each pick a large item, like a dresser or television set. Each person may leave with a bag of clothes.
Food, cleaning supplies and children's toys will also be available.
Brunner founded Neighbors Helping Neighbors in 2009 after a fire displaced 61 families from their homes on Chestnut Street. The group has grown and recently gained nonprofit status.
In the years since, Brunner has continued to host giveaways as a way to combat poverty and unemployment in the city.
On Saturday, doctors will be on hand to perform blood-pressure screenings for adults and lead-poisoning tests for children. There will be entertainment, information on social-services agencies and vendors selling hot food.
Donations will be accepted until the day of the event. Drop off donations of furniture, cleaning supplies, clothing, toys and non-perishable food during normal business hours at Bill Busters, 1000 E. Market St. in York.
"We could always use some more toys," Brunner said.
