Here's a story that may change your opinion of one of the most feared villains on the silver screen.

Despite having a well-known dark side, Darth Vader showed his softer side outside the Hollywood Fred Meyer on Tuesday night.

He worked on behalf of the Salvation Army and not the Evil Empire.

The charity hopes he can be a real force on behalf of the needy.

It was more than just Darth. The Salvation Army enlisted the help of a few team mascots, including Barley of the Hillsboro Hops.
