December Drive of the Month

Donate Items to Support the Northern Virginia Adult Rehabilitation Center

“NOVA-ARC” is financially self-sufficient and separate from the main Salvation Army group.  Donated items will be sold in the thrift store located at 6528 Little River Turnpike; Alexandria, VA.  The rehab center is at the same location as the thrift store and it serves up to 109 clients.  Because this store is so successful, 30% of proceeds are donated to other ARC centers located throughout the country. The Drive of the Month is looking for the following items for NOVA ARC:

  • Good condition, business and business-casual clothes, for men and women
  • Books/Compact Discs/Albums
  • Dishes/Kitchenware
  • Small appliances
  • Pots and pans
  • Lamps
  • Stemware and fine china
  • Any kind of jewelry
  • Musical instruments
  • Pictures/Frames/Artwork
  • Small Stereos/Speakers
  • Small TVs
  • Handbags/Belts/Scarfs
  • Vases

The Salvation Army has more no-fee rehabilitation facilities than any other program in America. For over 100 years, the Salvation Army’s Adult Rehabilitation Centers and Harbor Light Programs have offered spiritual, emotional, and social assistance to those who have lost the ability to cope with their problems and provide for themselves. Their free programs provide housing, food, counseling, community, and employment as they work to treat the symptoms, and ultimately the root causes, of prolonged alcohol and drug dependence.
