About The Salvation Army Family Store
In September, 1986 The Salvation Army opened Port Charlotte Service Unit, which became Port Charlotte Corps a year later. For almost 40 years, thousands of families and individuals in the entire County have been beneficiaries of our services. Officers, Soldiers, Advisory Board members, and Volunteers have fought tirelessly against hunger and hopelessness in an effort to keep the national standards in efficiency and prestige characteristic of The Salvation Army at national level. Before 2010, Arcadia Service Unit was managed by Florida Divisional Headquarters, but that year it was transferred to Port Charlotte Corps. In few years, it has been visible the improvements not only in presence but also in services. 2004’s Charlie Hurricane proved the maturity of The Salvation Army when it was forced to face a high magnitude emergency situation. This challenge did not only change our communities but also gave us the confidence about the capabilities of our movement.
