The Salvation Army Celebrates Grand ReOpening of Family Store
The Salvation Army of Greater Winston-Salem celebrated the Grand ReOpening of The Salvation Army Family Store at 2688 Peters Creek Parkway on Friday, March 17. The ceremony included a ribbon cutting ceremony with Winston-Salem Mayor Allen Joines, Salvation Army of Greater Winston-Salem Area Commander Major Stan Colbert, Salvation Army of Greater Winston-Salem Advisory Board Chair Jack Sutton, Salvation Army Divisional Secretary for Business Major Elizabeth Birks, and Family Store Manager Amy Gobble. Also on hand for the festivities were the Wake Forest University Demon Deacon, Salvation Army Academy of Music and Arts Brass Ensemble, and even a St. Patrick's Day Leprechaun. Guests and customers enjoyed punch and St. Patrick's Day themed snacks as they shopped the newly remodeled store, which features a greatly expanded clothing selection perfect for "thrifters". Shoppers also got the opportunity to draw from the leprechaun's "Pot of Gold" to receive extra discounts off their purchases. Veterans and students may now receive discounts on purchases every day of the week and Mondays are "Seniors Days", with seniors 54 and older receiving 25% off their entire purchase every Monday.

The goal of Pit Stops for Hope is to defeat childhood hunger in the state of North Carolina.
Because no child should go hungry, Richard Childress Racing Pit Crews teamed up with The Salvation Army of Winston-Salem and Second Harvest NWNC to raise funds by auctioning off items every NASCAR fan should cherish.
100% of the donations received from various efforts go directly to feed those in need. Since June 2013, PS4H has donated over $90k to help food insecure NC families!
