Donate a Pillow and Blanket to new Salvation Army Shelter with Target
(SAN BERNARDINO, Calif.) The Salvation Army San Bernardino Corps has registered at Target to help provide pillows, blankets and other bedding for its new shelter, a building under remodel on Tenth Street.
This will allow anyone the opportunity to shop for a housewarming gift for the Salvation Army, which hopes to move into the new shelter in early January. It needs new bedding because at its current location, shelter residents sleep on mats but in the new location they will sleep on beds.
“We will be treating them with much more dignity than the current conditions allow,” said Capt. Stephen Ball, executive director of the San Bernardino Corps. “But we’re going to need a lot of help. A family just getting started in a new house may need linens for three or four beds, but we’re going to need 100 of almost everything. We need the help of the community to provide even those most basic bedding needs.”
