SOUTHFIELD, MICH (WXYZ) — The Salvation Army Southeast Michigan Adult Rehabilitation Center is asking metro Detroiters to donate their unwanted new and gently items to any of the 35 Family Thrift Stores throughout the area.
As the winter months start winding down, stores are looking to stock the shelves with items such as housewares, small appliances, clothing and furniture. Household goods like cups, dishes, glasses, pots and pans are especially needed.
Donations made to The Salvation Army Family Thrift Stores are tax-deductible, and proceeds made at the stores are used to fund the nonprofit’s Adult Rehabilitation Centers, where those struggling with drugs and alcohol find help, hope and a second chance.
Items can be dropped-off at any of the 35 Family Thrift Stores in metro Detroit. Donors can also schedule an appointment for a Salvation Army truck to come pick up their items for free.
Donations of gently used clothing, linens, household appliances, furniture, toys, shoes, purses and housewares are accepted at all Salvation Army thrift store donation centers. There are safety reasons and other guidelines governing what can be resold. For this reason, The Salvation Army is not able to accept all donations.
