“Salvation Armys literally touch every ZIP code in America with some kind of service,” said Israel Gaither, commissioner and retired national commander,before greeting 430 guests for the Doing the Most Good Dinner.

Held at the Sheraton Station Square on Nov. 20, the event was brimming with individuals who had invested decades worth of involvement, extolling the organization’s mission of providing humanitarian services to all walks of life.

“If you spend time in the (Salvation) Army to see what they do for the neediest of people in our community, you would too,” said board member emeritus Jim Rohr.

The evening also recognized the Pittsburgh Pirates, Panera Bread, former Steelers tight end Randy Grossman and his wife, Barb, and Star 100.7 FM’s Flick for their community involvement.

“The work that the Salvation Army does, that’s what deserves the recognition,” Flick said.

Spied were Maj. Robert Kramer, WPXI’s Stephen Cropper, Heather Cianfrocco, divisional leader Maj.William Bode, Patty Paytas and Dr.John Guest.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
