Garage Sale Benefits Food Pantry

Through out the past few months, The Salvation Army DFW has been highlighting hunger in the community. We are passionate about putting an end to hunger.  You might remember the blog post about The Salvation Army in Lewsiville providing snack bags to people in the community. If you don't, click here to read the post. It's a good story!

 While The Salvation Army in Lewisville is doing a tremendous job at passing out snack bags, they are struggling to keep their food pantry full. On an average day, they give out 40-50 bags of groceries. The Salvation Army could really use a boost in food and / or monetary donations.

To help restock their food pantry shelves, the center is holding a garage sale on Saturday, April 17th, from 9a.m. - 2 p.m..

Sheila Skipsey, The Salvation Army Lewsiville director, says all proceeds raised from the garage sale will benefit their food pantry.

"We really need food," Skipsey says. "More people are coming to us who need our help."

If you'd like to help with the garage sale, please contact The Salvation Army in Lewisville at 972-353-9400.
