Clothing Vouchers

The Salvation Army’s Thrift Store receives hundreds of pounds of gently used items every day and voucher recipients are able to find the right items for their household at no cost.

 

Hours
Wednesdays: 9:00am-11:30am
Tuesday and Thursday: 1:00pm-3:30pm

 

Salvation Army clothing vouchers are given to households twice a year. We generally recommend that one be used for warmer clothing and the other for cooler clothing.

Vouchers allow households to bring home 6 items per person, but no more than 24 items total per voucher.
