In celebration of our anniversary, we
invite the public to join us on August 4th
from 12-1 PM at our 85th Anniversary
Behind the Red Shield Luncheon. This
luncheon will showcase The Salvation
Army's programs and services and will
also give guests an opportunity to tour
the facility and hear a former client share
his/her success story. RSVP required.
Please call 956.682.1468.
We also invite the public to support
Just Between Friends of McAllen. Just
Between Friends is a seasonal sales
event where communities come together
to buy and sell the best in gently-used
children's and maternity items at HUGE
SAVINGS. These events are held twice
We thank Just Between Friends for donating
$550 worth of clothing and other
items last year to needy families from
our shelter. After every event, unsold
items donated by vendors go to The Salvation
Army Thrift Store. The next Just
Between Friends event will be August
5th and 6th at the Nomad Shrine (1044
W Nolana Loop) in Pharr, TX.
