EL DORADO, Ark. (KTVE/KARD) — The Salvation Army of El Dorado has received a box truck for their family store. The box truck helps the Salvation Army collect donated furniture, beds, and clothes.

“A lot of issues there. a lot of things we couldn’t do but now with the box truck, we are able to get a lot more furniture and do a lot more stops in a day,” explained Major David Robinson.

The truck will pick up any donation in the El Dorado city limits. If donated items include clothing, the army asks residents to package those items ahead of pickup properly. For the truck to pick up donations outside the city limits, there must be furniture or appliances to pick up.

“The store is very vital to what we do here. The money raised stays right here and is recycled right through so it’s very important to us and our ministry to the community in doing that,” said Robinson.

According to the Salvation Army of El Dorado, the truck will run five days per week. For more information, call 870-863-4830.
