In celebration of National Salvation Army Week, Monday, May 14 to Sunday May 20, The Hannibal Salvation Army invites the community to Customer Appreciation Days at The Family Store. 

Customer Appreciation Day at The Family Store in Hannibal will be Thursday, May 17. Hot dogs, chips, drinks, and desserts will be served from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the store. In addition to Customer Appreciation Day, the store will host a daily Hide-N-Seek $5 gift card giveaway. The gift cards will be placed throughout the store, Monday through Friday, with one clue given each day via social media as to where customers can find the gift card in each store.

The Salvation Army Family Stores offer clothing, household furnishings and a variety of other items at affordable prices. Money raised from the sale of items helps provide funding for social service programs. For individuals and families in need who are unable to afford to purchase items they need, these items may be provided at no cost through our social services.
