Salvation Army Goulburn Corps – Family Store Truck

Jul 28, 2011 by

 With the recent purchase of a truck for its Family Store, Goulburn's Salvation Army can better serve the local community. The Veolia Mulwaree Trust contributed $5,000 and was proud to join with the Lions Club of Goulbur

n City, Rotary Club of Goulburn Argyle and Goulburn Workers Club to purchase the van.  The Salvation Army is now able to move furniture, white goods and all sorts of bulky items to and from its charity store.

The Salvation Army Goulburn Corps have been running the family store for nearly three decades and needed a suitable truck. The truck is needed to enable the pick up and delivery of unwanted/surplus goods that are then recycled to the needy in the community either at no cost or very low cost.

The Family Store helps the community care for itself in two ways; by recycling unwanted goods and supplying recycled clothes, furniture, bricabrac to the low income people in the community at a price they can afford.
