Salvation Army

Flag as Inappropriate

The Salvation Army started in England in 1872 when founder William Booth, an evangelical preacher, read a printer's proof of an annual report that claimed Booth's Christian mission was a "volunteer army." Booth crossed out the word "volunteer" and replaced it with "salvation," creating an institution that lasts to this day. The Salvation Army on East College Avenue is a family store that sells donations like clothes, shoes, furniture, appliances and more. Profits from these items are used to finance the Salvation Army's missionary work.
