    (San Bernardino, Calif.) The Salvation Army Family Store’s one-year anniversary sale is this Friday, Dec. 2, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., with the first 50 customers receiving an opportunity to win one of five free shopping sprees awarded at random.
    Located at 911 So. E. Street, the Salvation Army Family Store opened Dec. 2, 2010 with a modern department store design, similar to Target, allowing shoppers to walk easily from one section of the store to another, and giving them plenty of room to browse the merchandise and racks of clothing.
    The public is encouraged to come out and enjoy the FREE coffee, cocoa, doughnuts and popcorn beginning at 8:30 a.m. and take advantage of the huge savings during the celebration. Many items have discounts of up to 50% off. In addition to special discounts, which will be announced at several times throughout the day, you can even take a chance and spin the lucky wheel for even more discounted prizes.
    The E Street store, along with others in San Bernardino (on Highland Avenue), Redlands, Fontana, Pomona, Hesperia and Victorville, support the work of the San Bernardino Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center. This program provides drug and alcohol rehabilitation to more than 300 men each year.
    About the Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center
    The Adult Rehabilitation Center is a six-month program, combining rehabilitation and work therapy for men who wish to overcome drug or alcohol addiction. These men attend Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous meetings, receive one-on-one and group counseling, and learn about stress management, anger management, parenting and overcoming addiction. They also participate in spiritual and recreational activities they can continue after their treatment as part of a sober lifestyle.
    Men in San Bernardino County or Pomona Valley who are seeking help to overcome drug or alcohol addiction should call the Adult Rehabilitation Center in San Bernardino at (909) 889-9605. The Salvation Army offers a similar program for men in Riverside County; for more information about that program, call (951) 940-5790.
