Our friends in The Salvation Army Western Territory have a fabulous blog called Expect Change. Even if you don’t live the area, the blog’s known for featuring some really unique stories that anyone can enjoy.

Like their latest post about 16 year-old Meredith, a popular “beauty guru and vlogger” on YouTube, who recently posted a video about her fabulous fashion finds from her local Salvation Army thrift store.

Not only is Pat Riley the go-to guy for all things related to the Social Services arm of The Salvation Army Corps in Pasadena, he’s the go-to guy for inspiration.

You see, his passion for serving others is so apparent that he was the first person mentioned by our friends in the west when we said we were looking for “stars”: Salvation Army employees deserving a spotlight for their good work.
