Salvation Army in need of donations of clothing

To the editor:

Wintertime is the hardest season for The Salvation Army for clothing donations. Do you have items that have sat in your house for a long time that you’ve meant to get rid of? Did you know that when you donate to The Salvation Army you are saving a life?

Adult Rehabilitation Centers across the country continually have a hard time this time of year bringing in clothes. We are asking for your help Biddeford, Saco and Old Orchard Beach. Dropping off a few bags at a donation bin or center will go a long way to helping us help others. All donations are tax deductible, too.

Since the Adult Rehabilitation Center doesn’t solicit government funding, the ministry runs solely on the generosity of individuals, organizations and businesses who donate goods to be sold in our Portland Family Store.

Proceeds from their sale go toward providing important services for the program participants, helping them get back on their feet and live a productive life.

Please consider making a donation today by calling 800-SA-TRUCK or www.portland.satruck.org for a free pickup. You can also drop your donation at a store, donation center or donation box near you. Boxes are located throughout the Biddeford/Saco/Old Orchard Beach area and can be found at Old Orchard Beach Pratt Abbott, both Saco and Biddeford transfer stations, Midtown Music, Barnful Antiques, Biddeford Community Center, 457 Alfred St. and Saco Transportation Center, or visit our Donation Center located in Portland at 30 Warren Ave. or Portsmouth on Lafayette Road.
