To many people, The Salvation Army is the place where they can donate gently used clothing and household items. It's a great way to recycle goods that can be used by someone in need. But few people realize that the Family Store is here to provide support for our local Salvation Army through the sale of items at The Salvation Army Family Stores.

The Family Thrift Store, located at 2831 Gerstner Memorial Dr. (Hwy. 14) Lake Charles, is a store where people can buy merchandise at low, reasonable prices.  Items include clothing, furniture, household items, books, electronics, small appliances and much more.

In our community, the funds support The Salvation Army daily operations and programs such as emergency rent, food and other assistance.

In addition, The Salvation Army has the ability to provide a voucher to someone seeking emergency assistance, allowing them to access clothing, furniture and/or housewares at the Family Store at no cost. These vouchers may be offered to a homeless person who needs an outfit to wear to a funeral or a new job, to a single mother going to a job interview or to a family who lost everything in a fire or other disaster.

Help make lives better by scheduling a donation pickup, dropping off your gently used items, or by shopping at The Salvation Army Family Store near you.


Please phone 337-474-2554 for free furniture pick-up.
