Salvation Army Fabric Fair: a win-win event for everyone, Major Reel
Mar '09
Patterns, beautiful upholstery, elegant fabric, yarns and notions at discount prices are only a few things in store at the upcoming 21st Annual Salvation Army Fabric Fair.

Sponsored by the organization's Greater Pittsburgh Women's Auxiliary, not only is this event a bargain, but a major fundraiser benefiting needy families in Allegheny County. Fabric Fair is slated for Saturday, April 4th from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. at the South Park Home Economics Building, located on Brownsville Road.

"This event is a win-win for everyone," said Major Lynette Reel, the Western Pennsylvania Salvation Army's Associate Divisional Commander. "It is a perfect time to clean your closets, donate items and get a great deal while helping needy families." Fabric Fair generates more than $20,000 annually and provides critical social support services in Allegheny County.

Volunteers are needed to help sort and organize items in preparation of Fabric Fair. Donations of fabric and notions are still being accepted. Do your spring cleaning, get a bargain and support your neighbors in need.

Both a church and a social service organization, The Salvation Army began in London, England in 1865. Today, it provides critical services in 117 countries worldwide. The 28-county Western Pennsylvania Division serves thousands of needy families through a wide variety of support services.
