WSU Baseball Team among those honored for "Doing the Most Good"

October 24, 2013

The Salvation Army of Metro Detroit hosted its annual Metropolitan Detroit Advisory Board Civic Awards Dinner last evening to honor community partners who've demonstrated notable resolve for "Doing the Most Good" in metro Detroit. The Salvation Army honored four organizations with Doing the Most Good Awards, given to individuals and organizations that exemplify an extraordinary spirit of service and collaboration with The Salvation Army in times of need. Among the Most Good Awards was the Wayne State University Baseball Team, for its help in kicking off the annual Red Kettle Campaign in metro Detroit by converging on downtown's Campus Martius Park in freezing pre-dawn temperatures to help install The Salvation Army's giant Red Kettle. The structure stands 56 feet tall and 24 feet wide and glows with 25,000 red LED lights and, once installed, the team enthusiastically joins in The Salvation Army's first bell ring of the season.
