Quote:
If you have used items you would like to donate or are looking to purchase secondhand or recycled items, consider the Salvation Army Family Stores. Here you can find both used and never-used goods. The profits from the stores are used to support people in need as well as to fund drug and alcohol abuse treatment and rehabilitation program.

DONATIONS:
The Salvation Army Family Stores accept donated goods. You can either drop off your contribution at any of the locations listed below or arrange for a pick-up if the items you have exceed 4 regular-size fruit boxes. Furniture and electronics can also also be picked up.

What to donate to our Family Stores
Products: clothes, miscellaneous, toys, books, furniture etc.
Foods: Fishes and meat, vegetables, fruits, canned foods, rice, rice cakes, soybean paste, seasoning etc.
(Note: the food items are included since the Salvation Army also operates food markets for the elderly, the disabled and others in need.)

Arrange Pick-up by calling 02-365-7084 and asking for Mr. Yoo (YOO Joo Hyon) who speaks a little English (the person answering the telephone likely will not, however). K4E Note:There used to be an excellent English speaker working there, but not now, so you may need help from a Korean speaker.

Sally’s coffee (take-out) serve high quality Ethiopian coffee and are operated by the Salvation Army.

Namdaemun Store Tel 02-3789-7955 / Subway line 4, Hoehyun station, exit 4

In most neighbourhoods you can see 5 feet tall green metal boxes. You can put unwanted clothes in there.

In the winter I used to just take a large bag of winter clothes I no longer needed and left them on a bench in front of Seoul Station. I'd take the items out and lay them on a bench with a note in Korean basically saying "help yourself." Very Happy
