The "Others" Award: Romulo Diaz

The “Others” Award is rooted in the history of The Salvation Army, dating back to the early 1900s when General William Booth, the Army’s founder, wanted to send a word of encouragement and direction to his officers around the world.  Wanting to be thrifty yet make his message clear, the general sent this one word telegram: “Others.”  Following that history, The Salvation Army honors an individual or organization exemplifying an extraordinary spirit of service to “others,” not only through support of The Salvation Army but the broader community as well. The “Others” Award is given only to those who selflessly provide exceptional service to the community.

The "Doing The Most Good" Award: Aldustus Jordan

The Doing the Most Good “ Award is given to individuals and organizations that exemplify outstanding service and leadership in our shared community in collaboration with The Salvation Army. These individuals and organizations are often the first to arrive and the last to leave in times of need, compassionately helping to serve vulnerable and marginalized populations in Greater Philadelphia. Evangeline Booth, International General of The Salvation Army and daughter of our founder, was quoted as saying, “there is no reward equal to that of doing the most good for the most people in the most need.” This award is presented to those who aim to “Do the Most Good” in everything they do.
