SEOUL, March 18 (Korea Bizwire) — The Salvation Army’s charity pots, which are typically used as fundraising boxes to help the needy at the end of each year, have been transformed into donation boxes for quarantine supplies to overcome the COVID-19 outbreak.
The Salvation Army based in South Korea is carrying out a mask donation campaign for social service workers dubbed “to send my heart and support.”
As the novel coronavirus continues to spread, citizens are short of other quarantine items. Thus, the charity pots of the Salvation Army were repurposed into donation boxes to secure necessary items.
Charity pots for citizen donations of masks and hand sanitizers will be arranged in four locations nationwide, including two in Seoul, one in Busan and one in Daejeon, by Thursday.
The Salvation Army will deliver donated masks and sanitation supplies to social service workers, including street cleaners, bus drivers and security guards.
