The Salvation Army
The Salvation Army exists to meet human need wherever, whenever, and however we can. When you donate goods to The Salvation Army, those items are then sold at our Thrift Stores. The proceeds are used to fund our Adult Rehabilitation Centers, where those struggling with drugs and alcohol find help, hope, and a second chance at life. Check out the great work they do at http://satruck.org/.
