Salvation Army “Brand Ambassadors” hit the streets

Submitted by on October 8, 2010 – One Comment

If you were out doing weekend activities in the last couple of weeks, you may have run across one of our street teams getting the word out about the work of The Salvation Army.

They were dressed in red t-shirts handing out information about how to donate in-kind goods to the Army. And, they were busy doing good deeds too, like:

  • Cleaning up surrounding areas – picking up trash, putting shopping carts away, etc.
  • Opening doors, carrying shopping bags or groceries to cars, pumping gas, etc.
  • Passing out water, coffee, pastries, cookies, and snacks
  • Offering a shaded/covered area with chairs where people can rest
  • Handing out cards with quotes or phrases that make people smile

  • Here are the locations where our street teams were found:
    Anaheim, California
    Sherman Oaks, California
    Pasadena, California
    Long Beach, California
    San Diego, California
    Santa Monica, California
