Fresh off of his Hall of Fame induction, number 88 is coming to Abilene to speak at this event and help do some good for our neighborhood.

This is not the first time Drew has come to Abilene and helped out our community. He's teamed up with The Salvation Army before and has also helped out several youth programs and he was here in 2019 to help his late friend and pastor, Reverend Eddie Jordan.

What is the 'Doing the Most Good' event?

Each year, The Salvation Army puts on this event to help raise funds for veterans, the disabled, and the elderly who are experiencing homelessness. Proceeds from the event go towards a $1.1 million dollar shelter expansion.

'Doing the Most Good' is The Salvation Army's national brand strategy and distinct identifiable message. Moreover, it is a promise the organization makes to its contributors, clients, associates, officers and employees. The Salvation Army pledges to do the most good with contributions of money, time and resources, evidenced in that 82 cents of every dollar donated are directly allocated to services that assist people in need.
