We’re gearing up for our annual Salvation Army Recognition Luncheon happening this Thursday at the Garrison Conference Center at Fort Benjamin Harrison.
So what’s the luncheon all about? It’s about all the people that help The Salvation Army continue to do what it does. It’s for our awesome and talented volunteers, corporate and organization partners, board members, Women’s Auxiliary members, etc.
A few special awards will even be presented to those who go above and beyond the call of duty:
