Donations of used Household
Goods and Clothing:
Due to the high expense and time demands
associated with delivering your gently-used household goods and clothing
(gifts-in-kind), The Salvation cannot guarantee that any individual
gifts-in-kind donated now will be sent to the disaster area. In time of
disaster, our stores fill these needs from existing, pre-sorted stock. By
continuing to donate gently-used household goods to your local Salvation Army
store, you not only help your community, you help us prepare for future disaster
relief needs. To find your nearest drop-off location, please go to www.satruck.org.

continues to provide Hurricane Irene disaster relief efforts.
