K15: Volunteers bring some soul to Salvation Army

It's all about sole
Volunteers help sort clothes and shoes at Salvation Army

A group from Johnson University arrived at the Salvation Army Wednesday morning to volunteer in the warehouse. Duties included hanging clothes and matching up an array of shoes into pairs.

All of the work done will help run the local thrift shop, which is the main source of revenue for the Salvation Army in the downtown area. The Salvation Army provides meals to the local homeless, along with a free rehabilitation program. They also offer employment to many in the area.

Participants in the event were largely satisfied with the fact that they had made a difference in these people’s lives. One volunteer estimated that the group had done about three days worth of work for the staff there.
