Salvation Army Stores stay up late, Dec. 31

The Salvation Army Southeast Michigan Adult Rehabilitation Center (ARC) is seeking year-end donations at the nonprofit’s 34 metro Detroit thrift stores. Donations will be accepted until midnight, Dec. 31 to receive a 2014 tax receipt. All donations to The Salvation Army are tax deductible.
Donations of gently used clothing, accessories, housewares, furniture and toys can be dropped off. With drive-up, drop off sites supporters don’t even need to get out of their car. Salvation Army Thrift Store representatives will be onsite to move contributions from vehicles to the stores.
Kroger and Gardner White have teamed up with the Salvation Army by offering collection sites. Kroger is collecting gently used clothing and household items donations at drop off sites in the parking lots of three locations every Saturday, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday 1-5 p.m. excluding holiday weekends. The locations are Farmington Hills, 25780 Middlebelt (near 11 mile); Troy - 31 E. Long Lake (near Livernois) and Milford - 670 Highland Rd. (near Commerce).
Gardner-White Furniture stores will be accepting donations of gently used clothes for the Salvation Army during store hours of operation, through Dec. 31. Each of the eight Gardner-White locations — Auburn Hills, Canton, Macomb Township, Southfield, Taylor, Warren and Waterford Township. This excludes all small furniture items. Gardner-White is only able to accept clothing/shoe donations on behalf of The Salvation Army.
For more information, visit or call 313-965-7760.
