"Doing the Most Good." This slogan commonly used in conjunction with The Salvation Army originated from a quote made by Evangeline Booth, daughter of William Booth, the founder of The Salvation Army. She said:
"There is no reward equal to that of doing the most good to the most people in the most need."
Today, this idea continues to ring true for The Salvation Army through its slogan "Doing the Most Good" as well as its work in Portland, Ore.
Since 1886, The Salvation Army in Portland has been dedicated to doing the most good in any way possible. With 4 worship and family service centers, also known as corps, and 6 specialized programs throughout Clackamas, Multnomah, and Washington Counties, good is being done to those in the most need.
In 2011, Major Don Gilger was appointed as the Portland-Metro Coordinator. One of his goals is to partner with these communities to promote and motivate support within and outside of The Salvation Army.
The Portland-Metro corps and programs are a part of The Salvation Army Cascade Division, which serves all of Oregon and Southern Idaho and is headquartered in Happy Valley, Ore.
