Thank you Rhonda, Gannon & company for sponsoring Harold Brinson

Loved and missed dearly!

In a series of articles in 1960 the New York Post revealed that unemployed
West Virginia coal miners and their families were in dire need of food and clothing. Readers in New York City wanted to know how they could make donations. The publishers sought the cooperation of the Salvation Army, which arranged for eight of its Social Service Centers in New York, New Jersey, Long Island and West Chester County to collect contributions.

Within 12 days The Salvation Army had picked up more than 20,000 pounds of clothing, food and vitamins for the miners. Trucks were then
Donated by the Hudson Transportation Company of New York to haul
the goods to Welch, West Virginia, where they were delivered to Captain
Harold and Mrs. Harold Brinson, in charge of The Salvation Army Corps
there. The Brinsons distributed the supplies to the needy families. It is no
accident that the Salvation Army is often the first relief organization on the
Scene of disaster. The relief program is no helter-skelter affair in which
it's officers simply appear as if by magic and hand out coffee and doughnuts. They act in accordance with detailed and specific orders
set out in a Manuel for Emergency Disaster Service, which establishes a Director of Operations, an Assistant Director, and officers in charge of
Communications, Food Service, Transport, Clothing, Shelter, Casework Service, Public Information, Religious Service and Identifications
