They've already raised more than 200,000 dollars for disaster relief, but the Shenandoah District Church of the Brethren is not stopping there.

"It was our best year ever, the auction just keeps growing," said Joan Daggett.

They've been organizing the event for 13-years.

Proceeds go to help victims of natural disasters around the world, so there couldn't be a more appropriate time.

"When we have our auction and when we do this type of thing, it's not just the Brethren, its a good mixture of different denominations coming together as one, and that's really what it's all about," said Larry Wittig

But they're not stopping there. Beginning Friday, and through the weekend they'll be collecting items for disaster response kits at the Walmart in Dayton.

Each of the kits serves a special purpose for those in need.

"The nice thing about what we're doing this weekend is that you can spend as little as 75 cents, or as much as want to to help out," said Wittig.
