The Salvation Army Needs Your Support
The Grand Junction Salvation Army needs your help. Without additional financial support, their rehab program may have to shut down.
It's a fixture in the community. The new Salvation Army Thrift Store on North Avenue was a big improvement from the old location on 4th. The store is much more than a place to find a deal, it's the sole revenue generator for the local Salvation Army rehab program. If the store doesn't start seeing more traffic soon the program may have to be shut down.
Currently, there are 24 persons in the program. Drug and alcohol addiction are big problems in the Grand Valley. For many, the only hope of recovery is with the help and support a rehab program provides. Without additional funding, the program is at risk. The store needs about half a million dollars annually to stay afloat. The rehab program itself costs about $10,000 per person.
This holiday season consider doing some of your shopping at the Thrift Store. Not all of the best deals are online. There are bargains to be had at the store too. Of course, a cash donation is always helpful. Find out more info on how you can help by clicking HERE.
