Austin Salvation Army Pick Up alternative


The Salvation Army of Austin

The Salvation Army of Austin is committed to doing its best by helping individuals and families in crisis. The first way they do this is by offering a hot meal to anyone who wants one 365 days a year. The next step is to provide emotional, social, and spiritual assistance. They also have several Christmas programs, including the Red Kettle, The Angel Tree Program, and Feasts provided at Thanksgiving and Christmas. 

We donate on your behalf; you get the receipt.

Austin’s Salvation Army is genuinely doing a significant amount of good as they have six Austin-based centers, and $0.82 of every dollar, they receive goes to helping serve people in need. The Salvation Army is always in need of financial donations. They sell items in their thrift shop and appreciate cash donations and donations of items for the shop.
