Community Event: The Salvation Army ARC to Host Clothing Giveaway

Happy Tuesday, Detroit! Hope your week is going well so far. I have another great community story to bring a smile to your face. πŸ™‚ I love The Salvation Army. Not just because I’m addicted to thrift shopping (I love hunting for vintage clothing!). I also love The Salvation Army because they are always giving back to the community. Check out today’s post about the latest community event hosted by The Salvation Army!


The Salvation Army ARC in Detroit is hosting a free lunch and clothing giveaway to community members in need. The event will take place on Sunday, September 17, 2017, beginning at 8 A.M. withΒ chapel service. The first 700 people to arrive at the center will receive a ticket for a free lunch as well as a bag to fill with free clothing!

Local Salvation Army Donation Centers are experiencing an overflow of community donations and are consequently looking to give large amounts of clothing items back to the community.

Community members who participate in the event will have the opportunity to:

  • Attend an inspirational morning service filled with positive affirmations and worship.
  • Enjoy a complimentary, filling, and healthy lunch made by the ARC’s in-house culinary arts program.
  • Hand-select a bag filled with clothing, accessories, and more from the Salvation Army thrift stores’ surplus of donations.
  • Learn more about the programs and services offered by The Salvation Army ARC.

The Salvation Army is doing great things for the City of Detroit so spread the word about this wonderful community event!

About the Adult Rehabilitation Center

The Adult Rehabilitation Center is an integral part of The Salvation Army’s mission, and offers substance-abusing adults the opportunity to rebuild their lives through a voluntary, short-term residential self-help program designed to establish a sense of dignity, self-esteem and personal strength that will allow them to resist the desire to abuse a substance and regain their rightful place as contributing members of society. Completely self-funded, the ARC draws its entire operating budget from the revenue of its 37 metro Detroit thrift stores.
