Ah… the smell of springtime is in the air which means spring cleaning is just around the corner. And, what will we do with all with all the stuff we no longer want or need? Well, I’ve researched and found many organizations willing and thankful to accept such “stuff.”

The Salvation Army National Family Stores
When you donate goods to The Salvation Army, those goods are then sold through our Salvation Army Family Stores. The proceeds are used to fund their Adult Rehabilitation Centers. So every donation and every purchase makes a life-changing difference… not just for those in the grip of addiction, but for their families as well.
