SUMMIT COUNTY -- A new local website offers a simple, safe alternative to classified ads.
Drew Auman launched ReGives.com just two weeks ago and there are already hundreds of users across the country.
It's an online community where people can give and get items for free.
Auman says it makes the process of recycling much easier and ensures that instead of turning that washing machine into scrap metal or having it resold, it will go to a family in need.
He's also added features like feedback and volunteer moderators to make sure the content on the website is clean.
It's a non-profit he started so people in the community can help each other out.
Through the power of Facebook and Twitter, word is spreading fast.
