Salvation Army dinner notes achievements, recognizes community leaders

Many of those who live in Kenya’s slums subsist on less than $2 a day and are surrounded by disease, abject poverty, hunger, squalor and ramshackle housing.

What for most Americans is a routine trip to the kitchen for water often is a cumbersome, backbreaking walk of several miles in unrelenting heat for many Kenyans.

But in the midst of despair is hope, thanks largely to the efforts of the Salvation Army, an organization official noted Wednesday night.

“There are many things we can apply here in America from people who are so far away from and foreign to us,” said Col. Steven Howard, divisional commander with the Salvation Army’s Northeast Ohio Division.

Howard was the keynote speaker for the Salvation Army of Mahoning County’s 2013 Annual Civic Dinner Wednesday at The Lake Club, 1140 Paulin Road.

The gathering calls attention to the agency’s mission of serving those who suffer from addictions, hunger, homelessness and other maladies. It also recognizes local organizations and individuals for their community service.
