As we mentioned in Friday’s blog post, The Salvation Army was chosen to announce the Dallas Cowboys’ fourth round draft picks yesterday at Radio City Music Hall in New York City for the upcoming NFL season!
Representing The Salvation Army, Major George Hood, Chief Communications Officer, announced the Dallas Cowboys’ fourth round picks: Kyle Wilber, a defensive end from Wake Forest and Matt Johnson, a safety from Eastern Washington.
In celebration of National Salvation Army Week (NSAW), May 14-20, we’re highlighting the amazing individuals who volunteer their time to make this life a little better for those in need.
So, how do you “Do the Most Good” within your local community or around the world? We’d like to hear from our supporters, including volunteers, employees, and fans and followers on social media, how you volunteer and help your communities.
Tomorrow’s final draft picks will once again showcase an array of team colors, jerseys, famous names, and numbers. And standing among the action will be one unassuming man in his own team’s “jersey” – a navy blue, Salvation Army suit!
But not to worry, you won’t see Salvation Army officers battling it out at professional football games this fall (unless we’re ringing the bells outside the stadium for kettle donations!).
From a homeless shelter in Pittsburgh to the safe houses of Abu Dhabi, new National Advisory Board member Pamela Abdalla has been changing lives in the name of The Salvation Army for many years.
Pamela founded and maintained a coalition committed to bimonthly cultural, educational, and social programs at the Salvation Army’s Pittsburgh Family Caring Center (FCC). To support her work with the FCC, Pamela founded one of the nation’s most unique fundraiser, the “Annual Garbage Bag Gala.”
