  • Inform the community of how the SA is spending the funds and "doing the most good"
  • Recruit bell-ringers

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!

The Salvation Army wishes to thank everyone in Pulaski County who played a role in this county-wide community effort, especially those who donated and those who rang the bells.

2107 Bell-Ringing is Underway

Posted by Bill Grier on November 29, 2017 at 10:15 PM Comments comments (0)

1. Bell-Ringing began on Black Friday, 24 November.  The weather was unseasonably warm and there were large crowds at the Walmart and our bell-ringers filled all 20 slots on the first day of our bell-ringing effort! 

2. The Thanksgiving weekend effort was also a tremendous success.  For Friday and Saturday at Walmart and Price Cutter we filled 56 of 60 slots.  Those are amazing numbers and they should translate into lots of money to help the less fortunate. 

3. Individuals and groups are continuing to sign up; thanks to all who have already rung and also those who are signed up to ring.

4. There are still lots of slots available; just click on Bell-Ringing from the website menu and you can sign up online.  Or call Bill/Kathy Grier at 573-337-1089.  We need your help!

5. And please check out our pictures of our great bell-ringers. Just click on "Photo Gallery" from the website menu.

The Pulaski County Salvation Army participated again in the Veteran's Day Parade.  We drove a Salvation Army van and "Giant Kettle" in the parade which was attended by thousands.  The SA Parade Crew included Grace Murray, Jeanie Porter, and Bill & Kathy Grier.  Many parade onlookers commented on the great work the SA does in Pulaski County and also verbally committed to ring the bells.  The honors paid to our veterans were inspiring.  (Also see the "Photo Gallery" section for pictures of the parade)
