Since 1865, the Salvation Army has participated in a variety of philanthropic practices to put their mission to help others into fruition. Some of these efforts include organizing and facilitating programs for adult rehabilitation, elderly services, veteran’s affairs services, combating sexual trafficking, helping with natural disaster relief and much more.
The Salvation Army has recently announced an exclusive charitable partnership with Allied Van Lines, one of the world’s largest transportation companies. Together, these two organizations can help the nearly 30 million Americans in need.
For a Good Cause
In many cases, when families or companies are moving to a new location, they come across items that they no longer need, want or are willing to take the time to move—that’s where Allied comes in. Instead of throwing these valuable items away, Allied Van Lines can help give them to people in need by helping to collect, transport and drop off items to be donated at the appropriate Salvation Army locations.
"Allied Van Lines is committed to simplifying the moving process while doing our part in strengthening communities," said Lesli Bertoli, vice president and general manager at Allied Van Lines. "By offering our moving customers with a way to donate unwanted household items, they do good by helping others while receiving a tax benefit for the donated items."
How You Can Help
By donating clothing, electronics, furniture, household goods, and vehicles to be sold in Salvation Army Family Stores, you help transform lives in your community. All proceeds are used to fund Adult Rehabilitation Centers, where beneficiaries find help, hope, and a second chance at life through work therapy, education, counseling and spiritual development.
As a proud Allied Van Lines interstate agent, JD Carton & Son encourages New Jersey residents and businesses to consider their extra or unwanted items. Contact The Salvation Army at 1-800-SA-TRUCK to schedule a pick up at your home or business place. You will be doing a good deed for those in need plus get a tax write-off for your donations.
