Transcripts of full meetings of the council.

We are grateful for this opportunity to accept this honor. I want to thank the Councilwoman, also the City Council for all that you are doing to partner with the Salvation Army.

Our theme is that we do the most good, and through Walmart and other partnerships that we have, we are able to do that on a daily basis.

I just want to take this opportunity to introduce my team, if you will, who support me wholeheartedly in what we do in the City of Philadelphia. Of course, the Reverend Bonnie Camarda, who is really my right-hand person. And when you see her here, I send her, so that she will be aware of what's going on in the City. And, of course, Carol Walter, we thank you. And, of course, Walmart.

And this is Sherita Mouvon, who is responsible for the Peer Mentor Program at 1340 Brown Street where she works with those women and children who need direction in their life and helps them to stand up.

And, of course, Sandy Sheller. And this young woman here is the brain from all of this, because she knows people, and because we know her, we get to know people too. And so Sandy has really opened that door for us, and we do appreciate all you've done. Would you like to just say a word or two.
