Wednesday, February 22, 2012

Do you enjoy running for approximately 35 minutes? Do you like to support a good cause while you’re at it?

Here’s your chance! If you live in the Washington, DC area (or willing to travel), you can break a sweat on April 28th at The Salvation Army’s Kettle Classic 5K run/walk benefiting the Turning Point Center – a transitional living center for homeless women with children.

Welcome New Members!

Tuesday, February 21, 2012

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.
