For more than 125 years, The Salvation Army has been a major civic asset in the community.
The Salvation Army’s board members and community volunteers bring wisdom and support to the work of the Army in the Midland Division. Each advisory board member brings with him or her convictions, creativity, and wisdom from real life experiences in business and their local community.
The Midland Division of The Salvation Army offers a variety of committees and initiatives that board members may serve on, including the general Advisory Board, local Corps Councils, the Women’s Auxiliary and our newly created Civic Board.
Regional Advisory Board
Advisory Board members provide guidance, oversight, accountability and focus to The Salvation Army’s work in a number of capacities. The members work on committees within their wheelhouse of expertise – including finance, marketing, leadership development, property and more. Advisory board members meet one to two times monthly assist in a strategic planning and fundraising. Our Advisory Board members act as goodwill ambassadors for The Salvation Army throughout the St. Louis area.
The Greater St. Louis Civic Board of The Salvation Army is comprised of leaders of major private and public sector organizations who will participate in a way that involves both them and the institutions they lead directly with the good works of the Army, while being respectful of the value of the members’ time. Civic Board members attend only two meetings each year – one in the fall and another in the spring.
The Salvation Army has 12 corps community centers located throughout the St. Louis metropolitan areas. These community centers provide social services, food pantry assistance, family crisis support, educational and recreational programming and more. Perhaps the most important aid delivered at the local level through these community centers is spiritual sustenance delivered through weekly church services and spiritual education classes.
Individuals that choose to serve with the Women’s Auxiliary are The Salvation Army’s ambassadors at large – largely working to raise funds for Salvation Army programs, while sharing our mission and message with the community. The funds raised by the Women’s Auxiliary support programs that preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and meet human needs in His name without discrimination.
