The Salvation Army Thrift store is in need of donations. The store hasn’t seen a dry spell like this in six years, according to the manager.

Anna Moran manages the Thrift Store on North Division in Spokane and is using their giant reader board to advertise the fact that they need donations.

“Our furniture, our clothing, it’s just really depleting and I think it’s our economy,” Moran said. “People are putting them on eBay to sell, s lot o people are coming in asking if we do consignment, or sell clothes for people.”

Moran says her employees normally have piles of clothes to process each day, but not anymore.

They’re also running low on furniture, which is an important part of the Salvation Army’s voucher process. Families in need can use vouchers to get clothing and furniture for free from the thrift store.

“We’ve been calling furniture stores because families need beds, and I haven’t gotten any beds,” Moran said.

You can donate at the drop off sites located at the Fred Meyer on Sprague and Sullivan or at 11211 East Sprague and 2020 North Division. The Salvation Army Thrift Store also does a pick up service three days a week.
