Auxiliary's History in Palm Beach County

In 1988 a beautiful lady from our Nation's Capital became a full time resident of Palm Beach County and brought with her a love for The Salvation Army and a great enthusiasm for volunteerism. Is was that year which gave birth to the Auxiliary with Charlotte Swank as the Founder and Major Sharon Smith as The Salvation Army representative. On its first anniversary; the 100th member was enrolled.

In 1989, under the leadership of Major Ann McKinney, the "Hearts of Gold" luncheon was launched.

For information on the "Hearts of Gold" luncheon please click HERE or call 561-686-3530.
