The Salvation Army thrift store in Borger is holding a campaign it calls Christmas in June.
The store helps supply a food pantry for the homeless, said Director Terri Miller.
The store is running low on canned vegetables, cereal, spaghetti sauce, jellies and canned items such as beans, tuna, meat and soup.
The thrift store, located at 1090 Coronado Circle a stone's throw from the Plaza Restaurant & Bar, is great place to shop, Miller said.
“We have everything from furniture to clothing,” she said. “We have a little of everything.”
Miller said there is not a Salvation Army shelter in Borger; the closest one is in Amarillo.
However, if someone needs shelter, Miller said, they can come into the thrift store or call the store at 806-273-2491and the store can arrange transportation to Amarillo.
Also, anyone needing drug rehab can use the thrift store as a point of contact.
“They can fill out their applications here,” Miller said.
The thrift store is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.
