It takes a special type of person to give of one's self to make life better for others. William Booth, the founder of The Salvation Army, was this kind of person, dedicating his life to helping individuals in London who were considered outcasts of society - the homeless, the hungry, the poor and the destitute.
Dallas also has its share of special, caring people who support the vision of the founder. Because an army can do more than individuals working independently, these social and spiritual visionaries have joined forces to form an elite group known as the William Booth Society.
Individuals distinguish themselves as candidates for membership by making a monetary donation of $5,000 or more to The Salvation Army during a given year. Memberships may be renewed annually through the donor's continued demonstration of support.
