On Thursday, April 27, The Salvation Army Midland Division hosted the 2023 Doing The Most Good Awards and Civic Dinner at the St. Louis Hilton Frontenac. The event honored individuals and organizations who have made exceptional contributions to the community and are committed to supporting The Salvation Army’s mission of serving others. The awards recognized outstanding achievements in Volunteer Service, Individual Support, Program Impact and Community Partner.
The Community Partner Award was presented to United Way of Greater St. Louis, with President and CEO of United Way Michelle Tucker accepting the award.
“There is a lot of synergy between United Way’s mission and values and in what The Salvation Army does every day and who they’re helping, so that’s a continuous driver in why United Way invests in the Salvation Army,” said Tucker. “We’re proud to say that The Salvation Army is currently one of our largest allocations based on their reach and measurable impacts. Since 2000, United Way has invested more than $26 million into The Salvation Army’s programs and services.”
“United Way has been uplifting individuals and families throughout the St. Louis region for a long time and we are so proud to have been able to honor them with our Community Partner Award,” said Lt. Colonel Robert Webster of The Salvation Army. “Our century-long partnership with them has given us the capacity to make a meaningful difference in so many people’s lives and we look forward to more great things we do for the community as we continue to work together.”
