Donate to The Salvation Army after your Spring Cleaning

With Spring and the warmer weather just around the corner, many of us have started thinking about our annual Spring cleaning. While cleaning may seem like a chore, giving away some of your gently used items doesn’t have to be.  As you sort through your home in an effort to get organized, we encourage you do donate to a Salvation Army Thrift Store nearest you.
 
Did you know that goods donated to Salvation Army thrift stores can be given to families in need through a voucher system at our community services offices? In fact, last year, over $1.8 million in vouchers provided hundreds of families and individuals with basic necessities such as seasonal appropriate clothing, housewares, linens and furniture.
 
Donating to The Salvation Army Thrift Stores has even more benefits.
 
1. Thrift stores support many services and programs provided by The Salvation Army in your community including, shelters, food banks, rehabilitation programs and so much more!
2. The Salvation Army Thrift stores are entirely 'not for profit'. This means that your donation really does go a long way.
3. The Salvation Army makes every effort to be as environmentally conscious as possible.  This means that when items cannot be sold in stores, we recycle them, keeping your items out of landfills.
 
Remember that every donation you make to our thrift stores goes a long way in providing support in your local community.

‘the war to end all wars’.

In their efforts to encourage and assist the troops they initially offered the same wholesome activities they’d provided at home; religious services, the playing of music, hot cocoa and fudge.
