Southern Adventist University Partners With The Salvation Army For “Street Store” Service Project On MLK Day

  • Friday, January 13, 2017

Southern Adventist University is hosting a “Street Store” in partnership with The Salvation Army at 10:30 a.m. on Monday on the sidewalk in front of the Salvation Army, 800 McCallie Ave.  If it rains, the store will move inside The Salvation Army. .

"Street Stores are sidewalk pop-up shops that offers a personal shopper to assist the homeless with free clothes, providing them with a dignified shopping experience as they try on and select their own garments," organizers said.

Shoppers will also be provided with soup, sandwiches, and entertainment at the end of their shopping experience.  Approximately 100 Southern students, along with Salvation Army staff, will be volunteering at the event to assist with clothes and hand out free lunches for the “shoppers.” To watch a video about Street Stores, visit

This year marks the third year of the Chattanooga Street Store Project.  The Salvation Army has been serving the homeless for 123 years in the Chattanooga area.
