One of the great things about moving is that it forces you to take a good look at the items you have in your possession and de-clutter the unnecessary items from your life. However, many of your old belongings could help families in need. Instead of throwing these unwanted items away, consider donating them instead and giving another family the opportunity to give your belongings a second life. Not only are you clearing up space and weight for your relocation, but your charitable donations are tax deductible, giving you a way to lighten your own “load” as well. 

As a world renowned charity organization since 1865, The Salvation Army has helped millions of American families and individuals get back on their feet. Allied Van Lines is proud to announce an exclusive partnership with this honored charity for their Adult Rehabilitation Center (ARC) program. The ARC program is a self-funded and completely FREE program that has helped over 320,000 people take back control of their lives with work therapy, counseling, and rehabilitation services. As an agent of Allied Van Lines, Lincoln Storage proudly supports the ARC program.

From lightly worn clothing and old furniture to household goods and used vehicles, you can donate to The Salvation Army’s ARC Program by calling 1-800-SA-TRUCK or visiting to schedule a FREE pickup. Use The Salvation Army’s Donation Value Guide at to estimate the value of the items you’re donating and keep track of your own records so you can ensure you’ll receive an accurate tax write-off. 

As movers, we often see the many things that get left behind or thrown away during a move that are still in good condition. Don’t let your reusable items go to waste when they can help a family in need. We firmly believe that there’s value in giving back to the world—so contact our charity partner, The Salvation Army, today!
