High River Thrift Store Reopens

Thrift store helps residents of flood-stricken town.

January 6, 2014


A sign of hope and recovery, The Salvation Army’s thrift store in High River, Alta., officially reopened its doors in November.

“When the flood waters rose in June 2013, the Salvation Army facilities in High River suffered extensive damage,” explains Captain Pam Goodyear, divisional secretary for public relations and development , Alberta and Northern Territories Division. “We were fortunate to be able to resume our services very quickly out of tents and trailers on our church parking lot. Like many of the local businesses and services, we are thrilled to be back in our own facilities. As our neighbours begin to put their lives back together, we will be here, giving support and hope for years to come.”

Majors Grant and Lauren Effer, divisional secretary for business administration and area commander, Alberta and Northern Territories Division, Lieutenants Kelly and Cory Fifield, corps officers, High River’s Foothills Church, and High River Mayor Craig Snodgrass cut the ribbon and officially reopened the store and the Army’s community and family services, which is housed in the same building. The grand reopening brought together local residents who were sharing stories and finding common ground in the wake of the town’s recovery.
