Need Motivation to Spring Clean?

Help Someone In Need!

If you are getting a jump on spring cleaning, keep those less fortunate in mind.

When you donate to a Salvation Army Thrift Store, you are giving more than clothes, toys, housewares and electronics.  You are giving back to the community by allowing the Army to generate funds that sustain its community programs.

Your donations will mean positive changes for single moms who could use parenting classes, for the addicted in need of counselling, for children who don’t have access to nutritious meals, and much more.

A clean home feels great, but giving to a charity that offers  people hope is even better.
