New York Times Features Salvation Army in Oregon

The city of Salem's future was featured in today's edition.

Depiction of the upcomin Kroc Center in Salem

(SALEM) - The New York Times featured Oregon Salvation Army operations today, August 4th. The coverage includes a front page story on the The Salvation Army's Kroc Centers, including the one going into Salem.

Salem's Mayor Janet Taylor was quoted in the article, saying "The army's always been there, quietly behind the scenes taking care of what needs to be taken care of without fanfare or attention".

The Salvation Army's National Commander Israel L. Gaither is quoted, as is John Berglund, National Disaster Services Coordinator and John Sebby, Executive Director of Development and Public Relations in Portland, Oregon.

The story focuses on the San Diego Kroc Center as well as Salem, but paints a broad picture of The Salvation Army. It shows the San Diego Center as a model for the additional centers to be built across the nation and addresses the concern some have that the Kroc donation could detract from the mission.

The story appeared on the front page A1 nationally along with a photo. After the jump, to page A14, the story continued with four more photos including Captain John Van Cleef who was on the Salem Kroc Task Force and is now the Executive Director of the San Diego Kroc Center.

The people behind the Kroc Center's future location in Salem say there are few things that could address local problems in a better and more positive way.
