Did you know the average American produces about 4.5 lbs of trash every day, adding up to about 250 tons each year for our total population? With your help, The Salvation Army reduces this amount by reusing your donated goods to sell at our Family Store. Your belongings are spared from landfills, and fewer new products need to be manufactured!
This year, The Salvation Army Family Store is staying open late to make it easier for neighbors' year end donations of clothing and goods. Located at 4104 Ringgold Road at Belvoir Avenue, The Salvation Army Family Store is hoping for record number donations of clothing, furniture, appliances and house hold goods. Folks can donate 9 am - 9 pm, December 28 and December 30, and from 9 am - 6 pm on December 31. All merchandise will be 50% off on Saturday, December 28 and Monday, December 30.
With the popularity of "thrifting," pinterest and do-it-yourself (diy) shows, bringing hidden treasures back to life is a big trend right now. Instead of spending big bucks, with some time, practice and a little creativity, you can buy items at our thrift store and turn them into unique pieces for your home. Courtney Byrne, a local Chattanoogan, bought a piece of furniture from The Salvation Army Family Store and turned it into a beautiful piece for her bathroom. She's going to tell us more about her successful diy project.
