About the Organisation

Have you ever wondered what The Salvation Army does with your donations? Via Red Shield Industries, the organisation’s social enterprise arm, donations from the public and corporations, are recycled and restored. The items are then typically sold at its Family Thrift Shops to generate income for the organisation’s programmes and community outreach work.

Red Shield now occupies the former grounds of Tanglin Primary School. It runs a Donor Call Centre which pairs donor with a logistics arm which collects the items they wish to contribute. The donated items are then sorted based on type, quality and functionality.

Red Shield has also gone online which means treasure hunters and thrift-store shopaholics can window shop from the comfort of their home and give back to society all at once.
