Communities in Schools will host a yard sale Saturday from 8 a.m. until noon to benefit five North Charleston schools.

The sale will be held at the dropout prevention nonprofit’s North Charleston office, 1090 E. Montague Ave., and proceeds will go to help Chicora Elementary, Mary Ford Elementary, North Charleston Elementary, Morningside Middle and North Charleston High School.

Individuals and businesses have donated gently used items such as bikes, electronics, clothes and books. The sale is part of the nonprofit’s Community Circles project, which are community memers who pool their resources to support neighborhood schools.

Communities in Schools served more than 10,700 students in 23 Berkeley and Charleston County schools during the 2012-13 school year.
