The Salvation Army in Alaska puts on one of my favorite events each year, called Transformed Treasures.
Local artists scour our thrift stores for clothing, furniture, household items, jewelry, bric-a-brac, etc., that’s in need of a little love and attention and can be re-made into a thing of beauty. The Transformed Treasures are then auctioned off to support the work of The Salvation Army in Alaska.
Cecily is a current resident at Clitheroe who’s not only struggling with addiction, her husband is dying, and her son is at home taking care of himself.
