Featured on a 2005 episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, ALM Window & Door Inc. installs sturdy vinyl portals certified by the American Architectural Manufacturer's Association. All sliding glass gateways have white vinyl frames and tempered low-E glass that clashes with invading infrared and ultraviolet rays to keep interiors cool and prevent excessive sunlight from bleaching fabrics, furniture, and Barry Manilow record sleeves. The glass's sound-control glazing also muffles outdoor noises, and the white screen door's mesh openings let in playful breezes to make fake moustaches flutter.
Jacquez Art transforms photographs and furniture into distinctive pieces of home décor with framing, canvas reproduction, and upholstery services. The skilled staffers can custom-frame pictures in mouldings, glass, and fabrics, or transfer digital photos to gallery-wrapped canvas complete with UV protection and scratch resistance, making them ideal for display on a wall or homey sand dune. The shop also maintains a variety of colored and patterned fabrics to upholster furniture, and kids’ rooms are made 100% more grammatically correct with brightly colored letter trains made by Maple Landmark Woodcraft.
Like fancy suits, sofa sets are sewn from the same cut of fabric. These matching sets provide a well-rounded look in living rooms, but near misses tend to clash due to their small differences. At 20 show rooms throughout the western US, Mor Furniture for Less arranges complete-room sets so customers can envision the collections in their own homes. Furniture for living rooms, dining rooms, and children's rooms can be found in each store along with individual lamps, tables, and entertainment centers. The stores also carry complete sets of beds, dressers, and nightstands so that homeowners don’t receive criticism from design bloggers in their dreams.
The Salvation Army Family Store collects and resells donated items ranging from vintage clothing to antique furniture. Patrons can search for wardrobes, tables, and couches to fill out their home, plates and silverware to stock their empty kitchen, and VCRs to feed their pet robot. All proceeds from the Family Stores support The Salvation Army's San Diego Adult Rehabilitation Center, a 12-step work therapy and faith-based residential and transitional rehabilitation program for men and women dealing with alcohol and substance abuse. The six-month to two-year program is offered to program participants at no cost.
Though the best way to contribute to the organization's mission, especially following natural disasters such as the recent wildfires, is with monetary donations, the Salvation Army accepts donations of used goods and clothing to sell in the network of Family Stores. All sales of these donated items support the funding of the organization's programming. To donate goods, call (800) 728-7825 or visit www.SanDiego.SATruck.org; for monetary donations, call (866) 455-4357, visit www.SanDiego.SalvationArmy.org, or send to The Salvation Army Divisional Headquarters, SD Fires, 2320 Fifth Avenue, San Diego, CA 92101.
