For more than 50 years, The Salvation Army of Grayson County has helped people in need with services through the local Family Store. This week, we will be opening a new and improved Family Store located at 426 West Houston Street.
But, did you know The Salvation Army Family Store in Grayson County provides more than just reasonable prices on necessary merchandise? The Salvation Army also has a fulltime Social worker who works with families and people in need in the community to provide clothing and furniture vouchers that allow people to receive basic, necessary items free of charge.
In addition, The Salvation Army also runs a Back to School Program through the Family Store which provides clothing for children who would otherwise have nothing new to wear when beginning the school year. Store sales also go to directly help cover the costs of other Grayson County Salvation Army programs, such as the Family Shelter and Boys and Girls Club.
The Salvation Army is thankful to the community for their donations and patronage. Please stop by and shop with us this week when we open the doors to our new downtown Family Store!
The Grand Opening Ceremony will be held on June 2nd at 11:30 a.m. complete with a ribbon cutting and the familiar mobile disaster unit stocked with refreshments.
