Salvation Army Doing the Most Good Awards Luncheon

  • 18 photos for sale Buy a Photo
  • William Booth, founder of The Salvation Army said it best when he quoted, “God loves with a great love the man whose heart is bursting with a passion for the impossible. “ Some of those very people taking up these impossible deeds had a chance to be honored for their great efforts at the recent ‘Doing the Most Good Awards Luncheon ‘. Those in St. Louis who make up the backbone of positive community change, development and volunteerism were honored for their heroic works. Take Mackenzie Scott for example, who was diagnosed with Legg-Calves Perthes, a degenerative bone disease. Despite her condition Mackenzie was not about to let that stop her from being a blessing to others. She had an idea; she noticed many children missing the opportunity to share the joys of Christmas and found a way to spread the love. In order to bless others with toys that otherwise might be without, she started the organization FireTruckofToys.org. As a result both her and her nonprofit have become a living, thriving success. This special event took place at the Chase Park Plaza in the beautiful Khorassan Ballroom where attendees learned about some fantastic individuals, corporations and organizations, who have been making the community strong by providing endless possibilities for those in need!
