Did you know: The Salvation Army is more than red kettles and thrift stores?

Yet, if there’s one thing we hear time and time again it’s this: “I thought The Salvation Army was just kettles and thrift stores!” Which is generally followed by: “I wish more people knew about all The Salvation Army does.”

The Army’s extensive range of services are available in more than 130 countries worldwide and in every ZIP code in America. Each year, The Salvation Army serves more than 23 million Americans in need.

In this episode, Christin Thieme, Caring Magazine editor and Do Gooders Podcast host, aims to provide as complete an overview as possible on the extensive work of The Salvation Army and its six key pillars of service.

Good words from Christin Thieme in this show:

  • “In some ways, that’s exactly what makes a complete understanding of all The Salvation Army does so difficult. But it’s also what I think is beautiful about the Army—it fills the need, whatever it is, for whoever needs it.”
  • “Money given in your community, stays in your community to help your neighbors.”
  • “Know this: As long as The Salvation Army stands, there’s no such thing as ‘no place to go.’”
  • “Whatever the circumstance, The Salvation Army brings immediate help, continued hope and long-term healing to disaster survivors.”
