It’s Spring! Time to Get Cleaning and Do Some Good

Spring is officially here! The 2013-2014 winter season was a long and bitter cold one, and spring could not have arrived sooner.

It’s also National Spring Cleaning Week! And what better way to celebrate than to get your place spick and span with some serious de-cluttering in places like that pesky closet you’ve been “getting around to”.

I don’t know about you but I find the process of deep cleaning and getting rid of unwanted clutter relaxing and therapeutic. Not only can this be beneficial to you and your family but your donations can literally help change someone’s life.

Your donations to our Family Stores help support our Adult Rehabilitation Centers (ARC), which provide spiritual and physical therapy for over 200,000 adults in need each year. Like Nellie, a woman who struggled with substance abuse for 13 years and through the help of the ARC program, has found the grace of God and the strength to clean up her life. Watch her emotional story below:

Also, don’t feel limited to just donating your gently used clothing.  Click here to see a list of commonly donated appliances, furniture, household goods, and more. All donations are appreciated!

Making a donation is easy. We have many convenient drop-off locations and even schedule donation pick-ups at your house in most areas. Visit www.SAtruck.org.

Start the new season off clutter-free and clean, while helping someone in need get a fresh start.
