The 9th Annual

Civic Breakfast

Inspiring Hope

Tuesday, May 14, 2019

DoubleTree by Hilton, Reading

7:00 AM Breakfast

7:45 AM Program


John & Nadine Weidenhammer 


Met-Ed, a FirstEnergy Company



It is with great anticipation that we formally announce our 9th Annual Civic Breakfast, which will be held on Tuesday, May 14, 2019—7:00 a.m. (breakfast); 7:45 a.m. (program begins) at DoubleTree by Hilton, Reading. At this year’s breakfast, we will honor John & Nadine Weidenhammer with The Spirit of Reading Award, and Met-Ed, a FirstEnergy Company with the Others Award.  

Our Annual Civic Breakfast is a major fundraising opportunity that has and will enable us to continue meeting the growing needs of this community through our Family Services, Supportive Housing, Learning Center, and Pathway of Hope programs. 

The Salvation Army has a rich history and a strong reputation for being present at the point of need, whatever the need, whatever the cost! Whether it’s a box of food, Christmas gifts, a permanent place to live, a national disaster or just a listening ear, The Salvation Army is often the face of hope.

We find that same spirit in John & Nadine Weidenhammer, this year’s joint recipients of the Spirit of Reading Award. Together, they continue to focus on how to bring this community together to improve the quality of life for its residents. Their desire to improve community is evident through their various efforts to help others in many ways. They have played an active role in revitalizing Reading. Met-Ed, a FirstEnergy Company will be receiving the Others Award, and they are being recognized for many years of service to our community, but more specifically for partnering with and supporting The Salvation Army in Reading in meeting the vast variety of needs experienced by our neighbors.   Reading would not be the city it is today without such fine examples as our honorees.

It is our hope that your vision of making this community one that is better for all individuals inspires you to partner with us—creating opportunity for change, getting the job done and inspiring hope, whatever the need, whatever the cost!
