Greater Pittsburgh Advisory Board Spotlight: Michael Grady
Michael Grady’s involvement with The Salvation Army has inspired him personally in several ways, but most importantly in developing and strengthening his commitment to his faith.
A proud member of The Salvation Army Western PA Division’s Greater Pittsburgh Advisory Board since 2002, he was introduced to the organization through a neighbor and board member, William Schofield.
“I was initially impressed with the commitment and passion the Army displays as they respond to and serve communities in need,” Michael said. “I am grateful and blessed to experience this same level of passion and commitment to this day.”
Retiring in July 2020, Michael worked for Vector Security for 38 years. As a long-time advisory board member, he is dedicated to continuing to support the wide scope of support that The Salvation Army provides to people in need across the region.
“The exceptional level of care, support and giving that this charitable organization displays throughout our Western Pennsylvania communities is incredible,” Michael said. “Emergency Disaster Services, The Salvation Army and WTAE-TV’s project Bundle-Up, Treasures for Children, Harbor Light, the Women's and Men's ministry groups, and Camp Allegheny are just a few of the programs I could name that all leave a lasting impact. No organization gives back more than The Salvation Army.”
When he reflects on how The Salvation Army is “Doing the Most Good” day in and day out, he is reminded of a quote from author C.S. Lewis: "Relying on God has to begin all over again every day as if nothing had yet been done.”
Michael lives in Gibsonia, PA in the community of Treesdale.
