The Salvation Army is a great church and we are committed to providing outreach and support to those in need. There is a lot of talk about homophobia, so let me tell you, that is not the case. Everyone has their own beliefs, but as a church, we accept all who love God to come and worship. We help all in need and never ask the question of sexual orientation when interviewing people for support services. The Army is a great place for building relationships, so if you have a church near you, try it out on a Sunday. You just may like it!

Make sure to do your research before donating...it depends on which program/project the money is going towards. There are some wonderful people and excellent causes at this organization, but unfortunately there are also those who mismanage the hard earned money we donate in good faith. It's sad that we have to be so research savvy and do our homework before being kind. But, if all else fails...even if your money isn't used as you intended...you can never go wrong by helping others. YOU did the right thing.

Better place to give items to than the Goodwill, fo sure. There have been inconsistency with their stances on inclusion, particularly with the LGBTQ community. But they really do help. My suggestion would be to help on a more personal level though. Donate to specific things they do. I volunteered at a Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club in college and it was very rewarding and a much needed thing they were doing. Make sure you understand they are a church.

I had a chance to work for Salvation Army homeless mentally ill program it was a great program and we had many clients it was a sad day when they had to close it all down and let all the people working go else where with no notice. It was devastating because are clients where lost with out us. This is a great organization if they would use there money the right way for all the programs and not just for the captains to get nice pay raises and all that.

The Salvation Army is a great organization that gives to those who can't afford much. They use their time to influence others to donate clothes and things that they don't want or need for other less forunate. I gave this org a 4 out of 5 since I am a Christian and I supported this very much because of their willingness to serve. Over the years, they have changed their beliefs, but nethertheless, they are a wonderful organization.

The Salvation Army is actually an extremely corrupt organization that is good at hiding it. Not only do they exploit their costumers and workers, and attempt to shove their own beliefs down the throats of others. They do not support equality of religion/faith, color/race, gender/sexual preference. It makes me so sad that people put their trust in this organization in hopes their donations go towards a good cause...

I love shopping at my local Salvation Army store because I can find incredible fashion at super low prices. However, lots of donations get thrown away, and the store is typically disorganized. I also don't love the way that lots of profits are spent on salaries instead of the actual efforts of the charity. Overall, it is a good place to shop, but it isn't my choice charity to donate items or money to.

Love the Salvation Army. I used to thrift here a lot when I was younger and in high school. A few times during college. I donate most of my unused belongings to Salvation Army because I like how when they sell to make money to donate, the prices aren't extortionate like Goodwill. The whole point is to help those who are less fortunate. Also they have a really great furniture selection!

I used to shop at their stores, but I did research the company and found some sad information. They are extremely homophobic and transphobic. They're very religious and I don't support companies that are super religious. They do a great job for the homeless and and those in need but I want to support somebody who won't turn anybody down because of their orientation and/or gender.
