“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.
