Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) October 22, 2012
The Salvation Army of Northern Virginia is opening its first donation center in Ashburn, Virginia. A grand opening event is scheduled for November 3, 2012 at 44260 Ice Rink Plaza, #105, Ashburn, Virginia.
Beginning November 3rd, The Salvation Army of Northern Virginia will begin accepting community donations to benefit the Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center of Northern Virginia. Donors can bring their clothing, household good and more.
“Even the smallest donations can do a world of good. A gently used sweater or dress, a pair of shoes, household items—anything and everything helps! Just stop by our new donation center Ashburn, Virginia beginning November 3rd. Every donation can make a difference in someone’s life,” said Derek Anderson, Project Manager, who leads the project for The Salvation Army.
“The Salvation Army does not solicit government funding for its Adult Rehabilitation Centers, meaning the ministry runs solely on the generosity of families, individuals, organizations and businesses who donate goods to be sold in the Family Stores,” said Major Michael Vincent, The Salvation Army of Northern Virginia ARC Administrator.
All donations will be resold through The Salvation Army of Northern Virginia’s family stores. Revenue generated helps to fund The Salvation Army’s Adult Rehabilitation Center (ARC) program in Northern Virginia.
Each donation helps provide rehabilitation to program beneficiaries, as well as, a clean and healthy living environment, work therapy, group and individual counseling, spiritual direction and numerous resources to help program beneficiaries develop life skills and a personal relationship with God.
