In the midst of closing down its thrift store, the Lubbock Salvation Army offered some residents a last-minute chance for some shopping steals.
Residents who lost everything in the blaze at Oak Creek apartments on Labor Day got to rifle through the racks for things they need, including clothing, hygiene products, and appliances.
The nonprofit has been collecting in-kind donations from the community since that fire two weeks ago.
"All those items have started coming in, just since last Monday, we feel very blessed just to have a great community that can provide that sort of relief for us and for those victims, " said Justin Eatherly, Community Director for the Salvation Army. " Right now, it's really helped alot."
Eatherly said donations are always welcomed and there are more opportunities available for those families who didn't get partake in the event.
