The Salvation Army held a grand reopening and ribbon cutting for their Charlottesville family store Saturday morning.
For the past month they have been doing renovations on the inside of the store. They added rows of clothes, and organized both their furniture and appliance sections, hoping to get newer items to sale to the public.
“We need new donors,” says Major Allen Johnson, Corp Commander. “We need new purchasers and we need all of those things because what happens here isn't part of our Salvation Army mission.”
“Our mission is making sure we have resources to operate the programs that happen on Ridge Street.”
The money they raise from the store goes toward their work at the shelter, helping those in need with food and giving them a place to sleep at night.
