The Salvation Army is a faith-based organisation that provides rehabilitation services to people with the mission to treat the whole person. They help people recover from substance abuse, assist families of those affected and provide jobs for people so they may get back on their feet. The Salvation Army relies on donations to keep the organisation going. Donating your leather furniture to the Salvation Army is simple and will assist them in furthering their cause.

Tips and warnings
