Gloria Loew, Receptionist

Gloria began working for The Salvation Army in 1989, but was born and raised in The East Stroudsburg Salvation Army church.

When asked why she has dedicated her life to The Army, she humbly replied, "To serve people  through God." When pressed for further explanation, Gloria was reluctant to answer because for her, it really is that simple.

I can tell you, as someone who has had the pleasure of working along side of her the past two years, Gloria exemplifies what The Salvation Army is and does. Many times, people come through our front door needing someone to lean on and to pray with, seeking comfort in the darkest of times. Gloria is the first person they see and the first person to lead them into our chapel for prayer.

"All I've ever wanted to do was help people and make a difference," she elaborates. "I love the Army and can't ever imagine doing anything else."
