‘Hear ye, hear ye’
Proclaiming Salvation Army Week in Hawaii
Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie declared May 9-15 as Salvation Army Week in Hawaii and handed a proclamation to Western Territorial Commander Commissioner James Knaggs at a May 10 meeting at the State Capitol.
Hawaiian and Pacific Islands Divisional Leaders Majors Edward and Shelley Hill were also at the meeting.
Knaggs spoke to Abercrombie about Hawaii’s Ray and Joan Kroc Community Center, which will be the largest Kroc Center in the country when completed at the end of the year. Abercrombie expressed enthusiasm not only for the center’s potential to help those targeted by Mrs. Kroc, but also for other non-profits who may benefit from its use.
Abercrombie re-affirmed his strong commitment to support the good work of The Salvation Army, which he says touches the lives of many people in Hawaii.
