Village Ace Home & Hardware Donation Drive - Posted 4/14/14


The Salvation Army Southeast Michigan Adult Rehabilitation Center (ARC) recently launched a neighborhood donation drive for the communities of Grosse Pointe. Residents are invited to drop off their gently used goods at the Salvation Army truck conveniently located in the parking lot of Trinity Transportation on Mack Avenue between Moross and Cadieux.

 

“As a family-owned and -operated business, the mission of The Salvation Army is near and dear to our hearts,” said Mark Elmer landlord and owner of neighboring Village ACE Home and Hardware. “We’ve supported The Salvation Army’s community outreach programs for more than 5 years and hosting the Salvation Army donation truck is our way of continuing to help year-round.”

 

Community members can drop off their gently used clothing, accessories, housewares, furniture and more to the new permanent donation site from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays and 1-5 p.m. on Sundays.

 

“As the weather gets warmer, many people will begin spring cleaning,” said Merle Miller, administrator of The Salvation Army ARC. “Rather than throw away unneeded items, we encourage the community to donate their gently used goods to the Salvation Army thrift stores, where proceeds benefit our 180-day residential rehabilitation program for adults. By doing so, you’ll not only tidy up for the season, you will help save lives.”

 

Completely self-funded, the ARC operates two voluntary, 6-month residential rehabilitation centers for men and women that draw their working budgets from the revenue of the nonprofit’s 34 thrift stores.

Trinity Transportation is located at 18155 Mack Avenue between Maross Road and Kercheval Avenue in Detroit. For more information on the donation drive, visit www.salarmythrift.com or call 313.965.7760.

 

 


Marriott Donation - Posted 2/28/14

The Salvation Army Southeast Michigan Adult Rehabilitation Center (ARC) has received a generous donation from the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center. The landmark hotel is gifting more than 22,000 pieces of gently-used room furnishings as it begins a $30 million renovation to transform 1,329 guest rooms and 100,000 square feet of meeting space.

 

One of the tallest buildings in the Western Hemisphere, Marriott International announced plans to renovate its 71-floor Detroit hotel in August 2013. The massive makeover reflects the Marriott’s effort to connect with the next generation’s travel style, blending work and play in a mobile and global world.

 

“We’re committed to supporting Detroit area charities and continually look for innovative ways to give back,” said Shonda Johnson, Area General Manager of the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center. “This particular donation is true kismet; we need to dispense with more than 1,300 rooms of still very usable, high-quality furniture, and the Salvation Army is able to repurpose it to help Detroit area families in need.”

 

Over 22,000 pieces will be handed over to ARC for storage and distribution at the nonprofit’s 34 metro Detroit family thrift stores. The transfer of goods will happen in phases within a one-year time frame. The ARC expects to receive all wooden furniture including tables, desks, night stands and dressers; upholstered chairs and headboards; as well as lamps, mirrors, wall hangings, and linens/bedsets.

 

“This is the largest furniture donation The Salvation Army has received in Michigan to-date, and we’re so grateful to the Marriott for their kindness,” said Merle Miller, administrator of The Salvation Army Southeast Michigan Adult Rehabilitation Center. “Not only will their generosity help keep our stores filled, the sale of the donated items will help us to continue supporting our free 180-day adult rehabilitation programs for men and women.”

 

The ARC, which operates the nonprofit’s family thrift stores, also manages two adult rehabilitation centers in southeast Michigan, including a men’s facility in Detroit and women’s facility in Romulus. Completely self-funded, the ARC draws the entire operating budget of its rehabilitation centers from the revenue of its 34 metro Detroit thrift stores.

 

“We’re excited to partner with a business, like the Marriott, that shares our same value and commitment to the community,” said Miller.

Contributors are invited to enjoy hot chocolate and coffee until 9 a.m. courtesy of The Salvation Army via a mobile canteen truck. Canteen trucks are a part of The Salvation Army’s Emergency Disaster Services, providing food, temporary shelter, blankets, communications, pastoral counseling, emergency lighting, clean-up kits and referrals to Salvation Army centers to first responders, survivors and emergency personnel during times of need

“We are very excited to kick off a series of Doing the Most Good Week donation drives with an event at the GM Renaissance Center,” said Merle Miller, administrator of The Salvation Army Southeast Michigan Adult Rehabilitation Center. “The Ren Cen sees incredible traffic every day, and we hope that those who work in the Ren Cen, its businesses and the public will stop by to donate their unused, unwanted items.”

In addition to drive at the GM Renaissance Center, The Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center will be posting donation trucks at various locations throughout the metropolitan Detroit:

Thursday, May 16:
