The Salvation Army Southeast Michigan Adult Rehabilitation Center (ARC) is in need of donations to stock its 37 family thrift stores across metro Detroit. In particular the stores are running low on all things housewares, such as dishes, glassware, knick knacks, wall hangings, pictures, household electronics and more. Next to clothing, housewares is one of the most popular departments in the stores.
“This time of year we usually see a dip in store donations, but now is when we need them most,” said Rani Gabbara, director of retail operations for The Salvation Army ARC. “Our stores are filled with community-donated merchandise that is sold to support our rehabilitation centers that help men and women struggling with substance abuse overcome their self-defeating habits. We need everyone’s help to make that possible.”
Proceeds from all 37 metro Detroit thrift stores benefit The Salvation Army Southeast Michigan Adult Rehabilitation Center’s independently funded, 180-day residential rehabilitation program for men and women in Detroit and Romulus, respectively.
Donations of gently used clothing, accessories, housewares, furniture, toys and more are all accepted at each store. To find business hours for your local Salvation Army thrift store, visit semichigan.satruck.org.
