Advisory Board

The army behind the army


A major factor in the development and growth of Salvation Army programs and services has been the support given by community leaders throughout the country. This “army behind the Army” has interpreted community needs, explained the program and services to the community and provided financial assistance, fund raising and other support to the Army’s efforts to render effective service.

These friends give valued advice and assistance through their membership in organized groups such as advisory boards, advisory councils and committees, women’s auxiliaries, and as program and event volunteers.
