Press Release: Salvation Army and GoShare Partner for On-Demand Delivery


GoShare and Salvation Army Partner to Support Delivery from Family Stores

The Salvation Army has selected GoShare as their moving and delivery partner for donation pickup and last mile delivery services in the western region. This partnership will allow The Salvation Army’s western region to consolidate their previously fragmented delivery services coverage under one preferred partner.

GoShare represents a new way of providing logistics and last mile delivery support. GoShare’s proprietary technology connects businesses and individuals requiring moving and delivery assistance with an extensive network of local delivery professionals who are insured and background checked. This creates a virtual fleet for local, brick and mortar businesses to access on-demand.

“We are thrilled to be entering into a partnership with The Salvation Army, an organization that does so much good in communities across the nation,” said Shaun Savage, CEO of GoShare. “GoShare’s virtual fleet of on-demand delivery professionals will provide The Salvation Army with a cost-effective, convenient solution to facilitate donations to the Salvation Army. Additionally, GoShare makes it easier for shoppers to purchase second-hand furniture and other large items at their popular Family Thrift Stores.”

“Partnering with GoShare at 65 of our Family Thrift Store locations has given our customers the value-added service of reliable and reputable delivery for larger purchases, such as appliances and furniture”, says Major Henry Graciani, General Secretary of the Western Territory Adult Rehabilitation Centers.  “Proceeds from The Salvation Army Family Thrift Stores directly benefit Adult Rehabilitation Centers in those communities helping to combat homelessness and substance abuse, at the local level that save lives.”

Using the company’s website, iOS app, or Android app, Salvation Army customers can request one or two delivery professionals to assist with dropping off larger donations or delivering furniture and other purchases. Delivery professionals can arrive within thirty minutes or be scheduled to assist at a future date. All delivery professionals are insured and background checked. Delivery professionals will transport items and assist with loading and unloading.
