LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - A new store in Lafayette hopes by attracting shoppers they can change lives.
Quite a crowd gathered outside the new Salvation Army Family Store.
Housed inside the former Circuit City building on US 52, it features a variety of clothing, appliances and household items.
A portion of the sales go to help fund a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program in Indianapolis.
"I've heard folks say, 'How does that benefit us here in Tippecanoe County?' Well, presently we have 14 men from Tippecanoe County in our program. We bring a great look to Lafayette, a new added value," commented Envoy Steven McNary.
The organization is looking to bring in jobs and what they call a outlook to the thrift industry.
A Lafayette man charged with multiple bank robberies in Tippecanoe and Clinton Counties pleads guilty to a series of bank robberies in Illinois.
The drop in temperatures brings the potential for health dangers, such as hypothermia and frost bite. The bitter temperatures can pose a threat for children, adults and pets.
As it stands Wednesday, there will be no FEMA aid for tornado survivors in Howard County.
