LEE COUNTY, Fla - The Salvation Army of Lee, Hendry and Glades Counties held a back to school fashion show at it's Fort Myers store on Wednesday.
The fashion show is to help boost both sales and donations. Savvy shoppers can find everything from jeans and tops to school uniforms for a great price.
There has been a dramatic drop in donations and shoppers in Lee County Family Stores compared to a year ago. The money raised in the stores is used to fund The Salvation Army's Crossroads Program, a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center in Fort Myers. With revenue down, the Salvation Army is getting worried.
WINK News Anchor Lois Thome emceed the event and the children of WINK News This Morning Anchor Rob Spicker were among the models who showed off the fashions.
The store is stocked with brand name clothing that can be purchased at just a fraction of what it costs new. None of today's outfits cost more than $8.00 and many were less than half that.
The Salvation Army stores are also stocked with furniture, housewares, DVDs, books and many other gently used or new items.
