Dishin’ out love in Dallas

We sometimes wonder if Salvation Army National Advisory Board (NAB) Chairperson Charlotte Jones Anderson ever has a moment to relax!

Just two weeks after January’s NAB meeting wrapped up in San Diego, Charlotte was back in her hometown of Dallas yesterday serving lunch to 275 men and women at The Salvation Army’s Carr P. Collins Social Service Center.

Serving up chicken and crawfish maque choux, Charlotte was one of five Dallas executives volunteering to raise awareness for nonprofits such as The Salvation Army.

As Executive Vice President of Brand Management and President of Charities for the Dallas Cowboys, Charlotte’s active philanthropy life isn’t just limited to football season – this is a year-round game.

Even before she took over the role of NAB Chairperson in 2011, Charlotte’s been entrenched in the work of The Salvation Army. For 14 years she’s organized our annual Red Kettle Kickoff half-time show at the Dallas Cowboys Thanksgiving Day game. Additionally, she made possible the Cowboys Christmas Wish campaign this past Christmas which helped us raise an additional $4,000 towards our Red Kettle Campaign.

We are continually amazed by her enthusiastic devotion to help those in need through the work of The Salvation Army.
