Family Stores Doing the Most Good®



The Salvation Army logo is one of the most recognizable logos in the world.   Our mission is to help all those who need help, without discrimination, and with some of the lowest operating costs of any Non-Profit, our name has always been synonymous with Efficiency and Effectiveness.

Although many of our donations come from individuals, we are always looking for San Diego businesses, Non-Profits, Churches, and other Groups/Clubs to partner up with to make a bigger and better impact on our program participants.  And while we will always accept your monetary donation, here are some other ways to help out.

Volunteer Program for your Employees:    

  • Our robust Volunteer Program offers a place where your employees can be a part of serving their local community with their time and talents in one of our 7 Family Stores.  We'll taylor a project they can do as a group such as buidling a display, or other fun and team building idea

Shop at our Family Thrift Stores:    

  • Our stores are known for quality, affordability and great deals on home decor, furniture, clothing and vintage or hard to find items.    
  • We also provide the opportunity for families hit hard by the economy to buy things very inexpensively (a hand up instead of a hand out)

Host a Company or Community Donation Drive at your location with employees or the community.

Direct employees to frequently donate at one of our attended Trailer Sites or Stores

In-Kind Donations:  We rely on “In-Kind” Donations from businesses and individuals which are used in a few ways:

  • Given to our program's beneficiaries in appreciation to 130+ men and women who work hard on a daily basis to change their lives as they struggle with addictions
  • As prizes for our annual Alumni Banquet where we raise much needed funds for our Adult Rehabilitation Program here in San Diego
  • Given to customers as Prizes and Give-A-Ways during our Store Events and Donation Drives
