The 2022-2023 Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary Registration Deadline Approaches

0

There is a mistaken idea that Salvation Army Ladies Auxiliary just put on a gangbuster fashion show and sale-athon. Well, yes, they’ve been doing that for ages, but a lot more, too, since the Auxiliary was created by Margot Perot, Joanie Slaughter, Betty Harlan, Nancy Dedman, Millie Cooper and Carol Hailey back in 1991.

In addition to the 2023 “Giving In Style Fashion Show and Luncheon” on Tuesday May 16 at Meyerson chaired by Kim Quinnthey’ll be handing out Angel Tree gifts, filling Santa’s bags, serving dinner to victims of domestic violence, ringing kettle bells and packing back-to-school backpacks.

But all of this activity requires volunteers, which is why the 2022-2023 Auxiliary President Jennifer Dix and member co-chairs Carole Ann Brown and Kim Hext have added benefits to Auxiliary membership.

According to Jennifer, the two new “fellowship and service opportunities will be ‘Gifts Of the Harvest’ and ‘Gifts Of Love'”.

There are a variety of committees that members can support with the following programs:

  • Focus on children and families when we fill backpacks with school supplies, stuff small gifts into our Christmas Santa bags or provide a meal for women and children who are victims of domestic violence;
  • Support veterans by distributing knee blankets to those living in the VA Residential Center;
  • Support sobriety and provide birthday cakes to families celebrating monthly recovery milestones;
  • Get into the Christmas spirit and volunteer at the NorthPark Angel Tree, help distribute gifts at the Salvation Army Christmas and Disaster Center or ring a bell at an iconic Christmas kettle; and
  • Sort through donated high-fashion clothing and accessories in inventory for the annual fashion show and luncheon or volunteer at the after-sales fashion show.

Thanks to the Auxiliary, more than $15 million has been donated to The Salvation Army of North Texas‘many effective and life-changing programs.

If you are interested in being part of this team, you better hurry up and apply here. The deadline to be included in the 2022-2023 Member Directory is Friday, July 15.
