    The Salvation Army Central Arkansas Area Command has a Family Store coming soon to Little Rock. We rely on donations of clothing and household goods from the community, volunteer and employed staff, and the support of the general public. Proceeds from these stores are used to fund social assistance programs in the communities of Saline, White, Pulaski, and Lonoke Counties.

    In many cases, funds from the family stores provide additional funding for Salvation Army shelter programs or other family assistance. Often they provide additional resources for rehabilitation programs (a large part of rehabilitation services is work therapy). In all cases, 100% of Family Store proceeds help directly where it is needed in the community.

    While Salvation Army Family Stores are often seen as a place to find great bargains, it is easy to see that they do much more. Not only do they provide goods at low cost for those that truly need it, they also allow individuals a place to work as they begin to put the pieces of their life back together.

    How Can I Help the Family Store Program

    There are plenty of ways to help out the Family Store program. Primarily, these stores are constantly accepting donations. Please contact the Salvation Army Central Arkansas Area Command to determine what specific needs they may have.

    You may also wish to volunteer your time. Again, contacting us at 501-374-9296, will certainly be appreciated and will give you the best indication of what will be expected of you as a volunteer.
