The Salvation Army Advisory Board Mission Statement

The Advisory Board is the volunteer army behind the Army that interprets community needs, advocates programs to the community, and provides support to the Army’s efforts to render effective service.

The Salvation Army conducts a variety of religious and charitable activities in the community. It is the purpose of the board to assist The Salvation Army in the conduct of these activities by being familiar with all phases of its operations in the community, by formulating plans for the improvement of the facilities and programs offered, and by making recommendations with respect to fund-raising, community relations, program and expenditures.

I wanted to be open to an opportunity to help give insight, ideas and encouragement to all the work already being done in the community. It's a joy to support such an organization!"
