It's that time of the year where once again the Salvation Army is feeling extra generous and will be selling all clothes in their stores at 50% off. This also includes the stores here in Plainwell and in Portage. The Salvation Army has always been known for its network of thrift stores apart from being an evangelical part of the universal Christian church. The Sally Army raises money for its rehabilitation programs by selling donated used items such as clothing, housewares and toys. Clothing collected by Salvation Army stores that are not sold on location are often sold wholesale on the global second hand clothing market.

The cool thing about clothing items donated but never sold in the stores is that they are recycled and turned into other items such as carpets and rugs, instead of being thrown away in landfills. When items are bought at the Salvation Army thrift stores, part of the proceeds go towards The Salvation Army's emergency reliefs efforts and programs. Happy shopping and Happy 4th of July!
