A christian organization founded by General William Booth is the mid 1800's. They are actually aa denomination, known as "salvationists". They are spread accross the world, offering various public services including disaster relief, shelters for children, women, and the homeless. They also offer drug and alcohol rehab among various other services. They spread their religion in this process. I guess i just wanted to point out that it isn't just a thriftstore. You ignorant fucks.
ppl on urban dictionary are teh gay because they think that the salvation army is just a store.

A church founded in the 1800's by William and Catherine Booth; started as "The Christian Mission." It was started because Booth was tired of his church turning away the homeless and the drunks off the streets. It has now spread around the world, and it has branched out into disaster relief, shelters, rehabilitation centers, thrift stores, and many other charitable works.
Kid 1: Hey, I'm going to church after school. Want to come?
Kid 2: Oh that boring one on 9th street?
Kid 1: No, the cool one. The Salvation Army.

A great place to find rather interesting...albeit used...books, CD's, cassette tapes, record albums, 8-track tapes, DVD's, 12" laser discs, VHS video tapes, BETAMAX video tapes, and obsolete electronic equipment.
A lousy place for finding clothes, furniture, or anything else that might be useful for day-to-day living.
"The Salvation Army thrift store is having another book sale, four for a dollar. Unfortunatley, they're also having a used underwear sale too...."

The Salvation Army is a global organization dedicated to meeting human needs without discrimination in the name of Jesus Christ. Efforts include fighting hunger, working to end human trafficking/sex slavery, providing disaster relief, drilling wells to provide impoverished peoples with clean drinking water, locating missing persons, operating adult rehabilitation centers, operating homeless shelters, operating summer camps for underprivileged youths, providing prisoner rehabilitation and veterans affair services, providing assistance with rent/bills, providing basic needs like clothing and food, et. al.

Typically associated with the "Red Kettle Campaign" fundraiser performed every Christmas, where volunteers greet shoppers outside retail outlets by ringing bells, singing carols, or performing in a brass band.
I can't believe that tornado was only an hour ago and the Salvation Army already has hot food available.

The Salvation Army rescued my daughter from a Malaysian brothel.

I wish that Salvation Army bellringer would learn to play a trumpet!

no longer 'thrifty' in Minneapolis, anyway
.....used, stained couches for $80!
stuff donated by Target Corporation with Salvation Army pricetags stuck over the original (and CHEAPER) Target price tags.

what's up with that? it's all 'as is,' so one cannot return anything. and now there are signs about not opening any boxes.
