The Pulaski County Service Extension Unit of the Salvation Army is very pleased to announce that the Honorary Chair for 2018 will be Mrs Jeannie King of Waynesville MO.

Jeannie has been a long-time resident of Pulaski County and she brings a wealth of experience in sales and marketing.  She also has considerable experience in working with nonprofits.

Jeannie will bring her energy and considerable experience to the Salvation Army fund-raising efforts that begin in the fall of 2018.

Jeannie was attracted to the Salvation Army because she firmly believes that the SA lives up to their motto "Doing The Most Good"!

Welcome aboard Jeannie King!
