Salvation Army in urgent need of clothing donations

SALISBURY — The Salvation Army Family Store, 532 Jake Alexander Boulevard West, is in urgent need of clothing donations. Captain Bobby Carr, corps officer of the Rowan County Salvation Army, made the announcement Sunday afternoon. A combination of higher-than-usual demand, coupled with a drop in donations resulted in the shortage, Carr said.

Clothing items such as school uniforms are requested. But the biggest need, Carr said, is adult clothing — particularly those appropriate for work.

“We could use anything, but that’s where the biggest need is right now,” he said.

Gently-used business casual or office clothes are requested.

And of course, Carr said, the store is always in need of children’s clothes. School uniforms can be donated at any time, or at the end of the school year if they are no longer needed.

All funds raised at the store go to support Salvation Army local social service programs including utility, rental and food assistance for those in-need here in Rowan County. The local branch of the Salvation Army also provides clothing vouchers when there is a need.

Donations are accepted at the Salvation Army Family Store between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
