Friday, 18 March 2016

The Salvation Army Family Thrift Stores began with the formation of the Red Shield Industries in 1996. It was set up to handle the collection of donations-in-kind from donors giving to The Salvation Army. The Red Shield Industries run a total of five Family Stores island wide and its purpose is to retail the donations-in-kind to the general public and to needy families at affordable prices. This process of retail generates funds for The Salvation Army’s community and social programs.
