That couch you can’t figure out what to do with, those clothes in the back of your closet, the toys your kids don’t play with anymore? Things that seem useless to one person could change someone else’s life.
It is helping change Michelle's life. Michelle recently found herself at the Fayetteville Salvation Army Shelter after having to leave a stressful situation. Because of donations to the Salvation Army Store Michelle received vouchers to be able to shop and purchase the clothing items she needed.
Dawn says her favorite part of working at the Salvation Army is the opportunity to help people. To see lives changed. She sees that happen every day through their rehab programs, feeding programs, and shelters. Programs that are funded by the Salvation Army Stores.
More than 100 years after the Salvation Army was established in the United States their mission remains the same; to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.
The Salvation Army plays a vital role in our community, they are a safe harbor for anyone in need of help. As our community grows, and as more and more people in our community find their selves in need of assistance, the Salvation Army's needs have grown as well.
