LUBBOCK, TX (January 21, 2011)- The Salvation Army of Lubbock and Furniture Row are partnering to provide each household affected by last week’s apartment fire with $1,000 in new furniture. The Salvation Army will provide $500 to each household and Furniture Row will match this donation.

The Salvation Army anticipates spending $16,500 on new furniture for victims. This effort will be funded in part through proceeds raised at The Salvation Army Family Thrift Store. One hundred percent of these proceeds fund services offered by The Salvation Army right here in Lubbock.
The Lubbock community can support The Salvation Army by sending monetary donations to P.O. Box 2785 Lubbock, TX 79408 or by shopping at The Salvation Army Family Thrift Store.
