Couple buys out Brownwood thrift store's entire inventory of clothing for Harvey victims

BROWNWOOD, Texas - A couple purchased all the clothing from a Brownwood thrift store in order to donate them to victims of Hurricane Harvey.

It happened at the Bringing Hope Thrift Store, which is located along West Commerce Street, at 1 p.m. on Wednesday.

Owner Amanda Sharp said the couple came in wanting to spend $100. Since most pieces of the clothing are priced at 50 cents, Sharp sold them the entire inventory for $100.

Bringing Hope's racks have already been filling up as a steady stream of people continue dropping off donations.

"We still have a lot of empty racks, but we're on it," Sharp said. "People in our community have always been, so supportive of us."

She added, "You can't out give the Lord. He saw that we did what he wanted us to do, so he filled it back up."

Sharp said the clothing that was purchased will be taken down to Houston this weekend.
