The Salvation Army’s National Advisory Board (NAB) is growing! As of January 1, nine new members were joyfully welcomed into an already dynamic group of civic, philanthropic and business leaders. Each new member offers a diverse range of business skills and experience.
“We are thrilled to be growing the size and scope of The Salvation Army’s National Advisory Board,” said National Board Chair and President of Charities for the Dallas Cowboys, Mrs. Charlotte Jones Anderson. “The Board has now grown to 44 members and the combined wealth of experience, talent and dedication of these new leaders will bring a wonderful set of fresh ideas to our goal of helping others.”
Sleep and shelter: two of our most basic needs.
Thanks to Stearns & Foster’s hugely successful “Gift of Sleep” holiday program, residents at our shelters will receive both… along with a very comfortable bed!
The company, which is owned by Sealy, is donating $1 million worth of new mattresses to The Salvation Army.
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.
Many thanks to Major Bobby Westmorelan of The Salvation Army Ukraine and The Salvation Army, Southern Territory for providing the following information.
Recent temperatures in the Ukraine have reached as low as -36 degrees Celsius: the cause of a reported 135 person death toll. The Salvation Army is responding to the emergency by providing aid to the most vulnerable in all 13 unit locations throughout the country.
