Diane Paddison is a woman of many hats. As a member of The Salvation Army’s National Advisory Board, a high powered executive, published author, mother, wife, and most importantly, a Christian, we’re wondering – how the heck does she balance it all?
Thankfully, in her new book Work Love Pray, Diane offers her wisdom on how to “do it all” and yet still make faith your foundation and focus.
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.”
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.”
The Salvation Army’s National Advisory Board (NAB) met in Philadelphia last week, and Charlotte Jones Anderson officially began her term as our newest NAB Chairperson! She’s the first female to serve in this capacity.

Outgoing NAB Chairperson Rob Pace lauded Charlotte and the Jones family for all their contributions to the work of The Salvation Army. To his surprise, they presented him with a Dallas Cowboys jersey, complete with his own name on the back! Mr. Pace was grinning from ear to ear thanks to the thoughtful gift.
The Salvation Army is grateful to Rob Pace for his years of dedicated leadership, and we’re thrilled to now have installed our next incredible leader Charlotte Jones Anderson
The Salvation Army is proud to announce the new Chairman of our National Advisory Board (NAB) is Mrs. Charlotte Jones Anderson, the Executive Vice President of Brand Management/President of Charities for the Dallas Cowboys!
Mrs. Anderson will be the first-ever female chairperson of our NAB and will serve a three-year term beginning January 2011, following the term ending of our current chairman Rob Pace.
Pace told the Dallas Morning News, “[Anderson] had unanimous support – we all thought she was the exact right person for this responsibility.”
Read more of his thoughts, along with those of Salvation Army National Commander Israel Gaither, in the article here- Dallas Morning News: Cowboys exec Charlotte Jones Anderson will be new chairman of Salvation Army’s advisory board.
Serving as NAB Chairman is just the next chapter in Mrs. Anderson’s distinguished history of involvement with the Army. She has been a member of the NAB for the past 5 years, helped create a memorable kickoff to our annual Christmas Red Kettle campaigns for the last 13 years through her organization of the nationally televised Dallas Cowboys Thanksgiving Day game half-time show, and she also frequently participates in events at The Salvation Army’s Gene and Jerry Jones Family Center for Children which provides affordable childcare for low-income families.
Having worked with the Dallas Cowboys for 21 years, Mrs. Anderson is one of the NFL’s most innovative and versatile executives. She guides the team in everything from stadium design to entertainment, merchandising, uniforms design, and philanthropy. It’s no wonder they lay claim to one of the most popular brands in sports! She also supervises the fortunes and travels of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders – considered to be the most recognized and accomplished organization of its kind in the world.
The Salvation Army is confident that Mrs. Anderson’s support and experience with our organization, strong marketing background, and excellent vision displayed in guiding the Dallas Cowboys will help make her an excellent leader for our National Advisory Board!
