He will serve a three-year term as chair, where he will lead the ongoing mission of The Salvation Army in providing critical services to uplift vulnerable families and men, women and children in Trenton.

The Advisory Board supports the work of The Salvation Army Trenton Citadel by providing focused, mission-based leadership, and strategic guidance to better serve the community.

“The Salvation Army is uniquely positioned to continue its meaningful role in uplifting vulnerable families, youth, children and individuals.
