Members of the public can now donate large quantities of items including bulk items to The Salvation Army. Last Wednesday, Red Shield Industries (RSI), the social enterprise arm of The Salvation Army was launched to look more holistically into efforts to reuse, recycle and restore donations in-kind. Donated items will be resold at affordable prices through The Salvation Army’s Family Thrift Stores located in Banting, Melaka, Ipoh, Penang and Kuching.
The warehouse located in Taman Desaria, Petaling Jaya, aims to be highly regarded for excellence in delivery of a donation in-kind service, which is sensitive and responsive to the needs of the community while meeting the welfare and funding needs of The Salvation Army. Managing Director of Red Shield Industries, Mr Tian Toh Kian, said he was excited to create more opportunities for people to give, which will in turn, give hope to others.
Income generated through RSI will go towards funding The Salvation Army’s social and community services to help the underprivileged. Donated goods may also be distributed overseas to provide humanitarian aid in times of crisis.
To donate your used items to help the needy in our community, call our friendly RSI team at 03-7496 5834. Collections can be arranged for large and bulky items. If it’s too good to throw away, give it to The Salvation Army.
