The Salvation Army thrift store in Charlottesville is getting a facelift.
Store enhancements will include new fixtures, building clean up, and landscaping work done by the Blue Ridge Mountain Rotary Club.
The Salvation Army houses 93-people every evening, and provides services to people who need help starting over.
"The money made here goes directly to the Salvation Army and helps to feed and to home a lot of the homeless people here in our community," says Karen Rogers, Salvation Army board member.
The Salvation Army Family Store will mark the completion of the renovations with a celebration on Saturday, July 12, with a ribbon cutting at 10 a.m.
