Ruben Brown has made it all the way down to Dallas-Ft. Worth, Texas!
When he arrived at The Salvation Army in Arlington, he had a group of excited young fans waiting for him. Ruben also rolled west to the Mabee Center where he served lunch. At both Salvation Army programs, he didn’t waste any time getting involved and hanging out with his new friends.
Check out our photos to see all the fun!
