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 Adult Rehabilitation Centers. Located across the country, these centers provide faith-based residential and transitional rehabilitation programs for men and women dealing with alcohol and substance abuse.? Though the best way to contribute to the organization's mission 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. People can donate goods at convenient drop-off locations or schedule a free truck pickup of the donated items.

Whether tailoring care to keep babies on the same schedules they're on at home, preparing kids for kindergarten, or assisting grammar-school students with homework in afterschool programs, First Christian Academy acts as a support system for other education and childcare efforts outside its walls. Because the academy views parents as crucial to their kids' education, parents can take part in the advisory board or take advantage of the open-door policy and stop by the classroom. There, they'll see kids aged 6 weeks to 12 years cared for by licensed professionals. These teachers do everything, including helping infants develop their senses, teaching older children to recognize coins and dollar bills, and what mortgage is most beneficial when putting a down payment on a blanket fort.

Coinciding with National Bullying Awareness Month, Nevada PEP plans to raise awareness about the dangers of bullying this October by installing its disability-bullying- prevention programs in local schools. In each school, bullying-prevention bulletin boards, pledge bookmarks, and school-wide announcements will suggest ways for students to stand up to bullying and encourage them to help abolish bully behavior from their school culture. The program aims to reduce individual incidents of bullying and create a climate where students feel safe to learn. Nevada PEP requires additional funding to help cover the transportation, production, and material costs of running the disability-bullying-prevention program in schools.
