Luncheon honors exemplary partners

The Salvation Army Gresham Corps & Community Center is hosting a luncheon at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, March 4, to acknowledge local volunteers and companies who have helped to support its mission.

The “Hearts in Motion: a Community Recognition Lunch” will be held at the Gresham Corps, 473 S.E. 194th Ave. (on the corner of 194th and Southeast Stark Street).

Without the help of volunteers and partner organizations, The Salvation Army would not be able to serve the millions of people it does worldwide, said Major Don Gilger, Portland metro coordinator at The Salvation Army.

Awards will be presented at the luncheon to outstanding volunteers and partners who are “doing the most good.”If you would like to attend the event or are interested in sponsoring it, call Marcia McQuade at 503-661-8972, ext. 207. There are three sponsorship levels at $100, $250 and $500.
