The Salvation Army Family Stores represent the heart of our ministry: simply put, to help others in their time of need.
Our Family Stores help us accomplish this by providing quality, gently-used clothing, furniture and other goods to the community at bargain prices. The proceeds generated from these sales go to support the social service programs of The Salvation Army. Every donation and every purchase makes a life-changing difference. Not just for those in the grip of addiction, but for their families as well.
In the larger cities, such as Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, San Antonio and Houston, the funds generated support The Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Centers, residential alcohol and drug treatment programs for men. In mid-size and small communities, the funds support The Salvation Army daily operations and programs such as emergency rent, food and prescription assistance.
In addition, The Salvation Army has the ability to provide a voucher to someone seeking emergency assistance, allowing them to access clothing, furniture and/or housewares at the Family Store at no cost. These vouchers may be offered to a homeless person who needs an outfit to wear to a funeral, to a single mother going to a job interview or to a family who lost everything in a fire or other disaster.
Help make lives better by scheduling a donation pickup, dropping off your gently used items, or by shopping at our Salvation Family Store located at 723 N. Broadway Ave. Tyler, TX 75702.
