Spreading Blessings and Helping New Starts 

Many recognize The Salvation Army for our Thrift stores across the country. With many donations of household items, furniture, and clothing items we are able to bless many with needed items. However, without a thrift store location in Evansville, we found ourselves turning many wonderful donations away. These donations are needed by many, but we simply lacked the logistics to get them in the hands of those in need... Until now!

Thanks to one very dedicated volunteer a program was born...Donation Exchange... Seeking to take the leftover blessings and resources of many and re-home them to those without. There are many people who want to see their unused furniture or household items go to someone in need. Perhaps a homeless client that was recently housed, a recent fire victim trying to get back on their feet, or someone who is caring for their sick relative and is in need of a bed and other items.

After the launch of the program in 2021, volunteers went right to work, and over the course of the year redistributed over 10,000 furniture and household items to over 150 families and clients in need. People receive beds, dressers, appliances, and many others, all at no cost to them. In 2022 we have added a partnership with Saint Vincent De Paul thrift stores to help direct clients to other needed items, often at little or no cost to them. 

We are not currently accepting new clients as the waiting list is long and we are working to complete these needs. When we open up the waiting list we will be sure to post about it on our facebook and instagram pages. We ARE still in need of donations and items to fill current orders and needs. We are also in great need of able bodied volunteers to lift and sort items for delivery. See below to donate or volunteer
