Salvation Army celebrates 5th anniversary of Thrift Store in Rutland

Join the Salvation Army for a barbecue to celebrate 5th anniversary of their Community Life Centre and Thrift Store at 200 Rutland Road S.

The Salvation Army welcomes you to share in the 5th anniversary of its Community Life Centre and Thrift Store, at 200 Rutland Road South, this Friday, March 20.

They are inviting the community to join them as they show their appreciation for all the community support in Rutland over these last five years. The Thrift Store is open from 9 am to 8 pm and will be offering a hotdog barbeque and cake from 11 am to 2 pm this Friday.

“We will also be having some exciting promotions including a pop a balloon for savings event where you could win various discounts, gifts and coupons,” says Joe Desjardins, Thrift Store operations manager.

The Salvation Army currently operates three Thrift Stores—in Kelowna, Rutland and West Kelowna. Each offer a cost effective shopping experience and assists the community by recycling quality used goods, keeping them out of the landfill.

The Salvation Army Thrift Stores help provide funding for their Children’s & Sports ministries, Send A Kid To Camp at Camp Sunrise on the Sunshine Coast, along with a variety of other community programs within the Central Okanagan.

The Salvation Army has been serving the Central Okanagan since 1919.
