The Salvation Army, or Salvos, is one of the most recognisable charitable organisations in the world, and the same goes for in Australia. Over the years, they’ve built up a solid reputation with Australians as a great organisations to donate to.

Its humble beginnings began back in 1865, being founded by William and Catherine Booth in London. Over the course of more than a century, they’ve grown their presence to more than 131 countries with more than 1.5 million members around the globe.

Australia first saw glimpses of The Salvation Army in 1880, lead by Edward Saunders and John Gore. As you know, today they’re a household name in the charity industry, thanks to the help of many generous Australians like yourself donating to their cause.

Today, there are over 350 established church locations in which the Salvation Army operates in Australia. With hundreds of op shops and stores around the country ready to accept your clothing donations as well as other household items.

You’ll find their retail stores will accept almost any donations that can be re-sold or passed on to those in need. For Salvos donation bins, most will only accept smaller items such as clothes, toys, books, and accessories.

If you’re unsure whether or not the Salvos near you will accept what you’re thinking of donating, give them a call beforehand. Better safe than sorry.
