The Salvation Army is celebrating its 58th anniversary by giving back to customers and volunteers. 

The Albany chapter will celebrate Salvation Army Appreciation week Tuesday with customer appreciation day at its thrift store.

From nine to five, customers will get 10% off everything in the store. They'll also hold a drawing for a $25 shopping spree. The organization will thank volunteers and donors at an open house Thursday.

The Salvation Army has only 13 staff members in Albany.

Captain Doug McClure says their work would be impossible without the community's help.

"It's a chance to say thank you to all those wonderful donors and volunteers. It's a chance for us to step back and say, you know what yes you see me in front of people, you see the staff but the truth is the volunteers and donors are really where it's at and we really appreciate them," McClure said.

The open house will be held from 5:30 to 7:00 Thursday. Volunteers and donors are invited to stop by and tour the shelter and see some of the work the organization does. The shelter serves 33,000 meals a year.

The Salvation Army hopes to make improvements to the shelter and expand services at a Place for Hope over the next year.
