WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) -

The Salvation Army Family Store in Wichita Falls is closed for the next week starting Tuesday as the organization's new leaders work to spruce it up.

The new Sergeants Toby and Linda Romack are hard at work revamping the store. Sales made there, along with donations and fundraising help them help those who need their assistance.

"82 cents of every dollar that's generated here goes right back to our community and services,” said Romack.

It is a calling Sgt. Romack has been answering for about 24 years.

“I've been in the ministry with the Salvation Army since 1994,” he said.

While they moved to the Falls from Corsicana, Texas just three weeks ago, they already have a list of goals.

“We're going to implement some new programs, and services to see how we can best serve the community,” said Sgt. Romack.

He said they are still assessing those needs.

"It seems that we found so far they are great and there is a strong need for the salvation army presence here," he said. 

New programs like job training and giving out food boxes, plus opening up the cooling station so people can get out of the heat and of course serving breakfast, lunch and dinner.

 “I love helping people,” he said. “Just loving people right where they're at, a handshake a bottle of water food clothing whatever it may believe.”

He said he and his wife are here to serve the residents of Wichita Falls the best they can.

The Salvation Army family store will open back up Tuesday, July 17 at 9 a.m.

Sgt. Romack said they need volunteers and donations for the store. Items can be dropped off or they can come and pick them up.
