Thursday morning, the Just Between Friends sale kicked off at the Tucson Convention Center.

From clothes to supplies to sports equipment, you can find everything your family needs to get back to school ready. 

Thousands of gently used items were put up for sale at around 50 to 90 percent off of what you'd pay in the store. Just Between Friends makes sure everything is in good condition and ready to be used again.

Part of the price you pay goes back to the family who brought it to the sale, but this also is a huge help to local charity More Than a Bed.

Anything that isn't purchased will go to helping foster children get clothing and supplies, and with more than 15,000 children in Arizona waiting for foster homes, this can make a big difference.

Over the last several years, Just Between Friends has donated more than 30,000 items to More than a Bed.
